Effectively communicating in a "presentation" setting is a key skill for everyone - yet most of us are let loose with PowerPoint without any training. You have no doubt experienced the results -- seemingly endless presentations that send you to sleep rather than inform and inspire. This talk will address how to prepare and structure an effective presentation based on proven psychological principles, share a few PowerPoint tips, and offer advice on how to get people within your organization thinking differently about presentations.
We have invited a distinguished speakers for the event -
