The Art of Presentations
Effective presentations require thoughtful advance planning and preparation. This includes developing a clear outline and understanding your audience's needs and perspectives. It is also critical to establish credibility even before the presentation begins through your biography, session description, and professional demeanor.
During the presentation, impactful techniques involve making eye contact, using hand gestures effectively, moving around the space, varying your tone and inflection, and smoothly handling disruptions or questions.
This seminar will cover best practices for both in-person and virtual presentations.
We will discuss critical strategies across the presentation timeline - from initial planning to final delivery.
Key topics include:
- crafting a compelling session outline and description
- understanding audience expectations and perspectives
- establishing credibility through bios and pre-presentation interactions
- employing effective verbal and non-verbal techniques for live and virtual presentations
- handling disruptions and live Q&A smoothly
Whether presenting in-person or online, thoughtful advance work coupled with strong presentation skills can create impactful, engaging sessions for any audience.
This seminar will equip attendees with practical tips and techniques for delivering high quality presentations both live and virtually.
Meeting fees are waived.
