How To Be A Great Presenter
Every day in the world there are millions of presentations. A few are powerful and effective and most are boring. If you understand how people listen, see, learn, think, and react, then you can deliver a presentation that is memorable and persuasive. Whether you are presenting your design ideas to your team, or making recommendations to a client, being able to make a persuasive and skillful presentation is critical to your own professional growth and to the success of your work. It’s not enough to get up and present your ideas, or what you know, or what you think people should want to hear. Great presenters craft their presentation based on what the audience already knows and is willing to do. Great presenters know how far the audience can stretch, and they know when and how to give a “call to action”. Based on her book, 100 Things Every Presenter Needs To Know About People, in this intensive, interactive, hands-on workshop, Dr. Susan Weinschenk will teach you how to be a great presenter.
