Which of the following questions best describes you?
1. Do you routinely give presentations on different topics to a particular kind of audience?
2. Do you give presentations on the same topic to audiences of all different types?
3. Do you give different presentations to different kinds of audiences?
Whichever is the case, there will be times when you want to use the presentation skills taught in this course to make your presentation even more effective by spending some advance time tailoring it for a specific audience.
Imagine this: You arrive at a presentation only to discover the composition of your audience is not what you expected.
If you haven't had this happen to you, it will.
Even if you’ve done your research and prepared very carefully for your audience, sometimes your audience's expectations are different from what you had anticipated.
In these cases, you’ll also have to tailor your presentation, but you’ll have to do it in real time.
Using the presentation skills in this program will give your presentation much extra added value.
Our goal is to give people the presentation skills they need to create a real connection with your audience.
Not "pie in the sky" ideas, one hit wonders or concepts that sound good on paper but are impossible to execute, that come off as disingenuous or that are just plain ineffective.
Over 20 years ago, I began crafting this method for meeting the challenges of public speaking in a way that’s genuine to you.
We show you exactly how to take these presentation skills and use them to seize opportunities, big & small.
So you can have the tools you need to deliver your message, because our guess is what you have to say is pretty important.
