Peter Urs Bender

Peter Urs Bender was known to the media as "Canada's Presentation Guru". His first book, Secrets of Power Presentations, is used in more than forty colleges and universities and many of the top 500 companies, with more than 100,000 copies in print. It has also been translated into many languages, including French, German, Chinese, and Russian. Bender is also the author of the bestselling Leadership from Within, and the co-author of Secrets of Power Marketing and Secrets of Face-to-Face Communication.

Bender's power as a speaker and as a leader came from personal experience. Swiss-born, he immigrated to North America at the age of twenty-three to learn English. Soon after, he became a top salesperson in the high-tech industry, launched his own business, and self-published his first book. Despite having an intense fear of public speaking early in his life, he became one of North America's top professional speakers.

Bender had motivated business audiences internationally and has made hundreds of radio and TV appearances. Learn more about Peter and his work by visiting http://www.peterursbender.com/
