We know it when we see it … and when we don’t.
Every day at work is about influencing people to take action, to think differently, to persuade customers, coworkers, executives, and direct reports. For better or worse, we reach them through our presentation skills.
We pay attention when we clearly connect the presenter with messages that mean something to us personally.
We’re positively influenced by people who relate to our situation, who grab our attention immediately, and who connect logic with emotion – the ‘why’ of the matter. We go along willingly with the speaker who can show us how the story we’re part of is important, how it started, and where it is going. We want to hear how we can solve our problems, improve our results, and help our customers.
People stick with even difficult presentations when the speaker has clearly made the effort to connect to their world, their views, their problems.
We will show you how this is done through effective preparation and organizing techniques, visuals that work for you, and delivery methods that fit your personality. Most importantly, you will learn by doing – presentation skills are not learned from a great book about Steve Jobs – they’re learned by doing what Steve Jobs did – hard work and practice.
We have great experience in helping scientists, executives, salespeople, marketers, and people from all walks of life who want to make a difference by effectively presenting in front of all kinds of audiences. Give us a call to explore how we can provide the process and knowledge that will help your organization.
