Being able to communicate with various audiences via presentations, speeches, and webinars is a key element for success. As Shakespeare said, “No man is lord of anything ‘til he communicate his parts to others.” Examples abound where speaking ability has helped open doors (think Barack Obama), won important contracts, inspired colleagues, and led to leadership positions.
With current presentations technology, executives and other team members are able to prepare and deliver presentations of much better quality than back in the color slide and overhead projector days. Unfortunately too many of today’s presentations are famous for overwhelming audiences with boring, unfathomable material and imparting a high urge for audience members to flee the conference room. This session will explore key factors that make the difference between interesting, useful presentations and those that hinder, rather than aid, communication.
We’ll examine keys to success in four primary areas
-Planning - being clear about your audiences, your objectives, and strategy
-Preparing – organizing your material, developing reinforcing materials, creating visual support that truly helps, not hinders communication
-Proofing – getting ready so your presentation goes smoothly
-Performing – delivering to keep audiences onboard, not put them to sleep.
These techniques apply to team members who give presentations to customers, upper management, colleagues, public groups, industry and association conferences: executives, program managers, sales teams, techies and more.
