How To Craft and Deliver Compelling Talks
Presentations are a familiar part of corporate life. Yet speakers too often narrate a series of densely packed PowerPoint slides, boring their audience. Persuasive Presentations is designed to help participants avoid this trap. It shows how to create and deliver talks that are focused, clear, and persuasive.
This seminar examines every step in the creation of a high-impact presentation – including analyzing your audience, designing the argument, constructing effective slides, and delivering with poise and confidence. You will learn that all aspects of the presentation – its structure, language, visuals, and delivery – should convey a central idea. Thoughts, words, and actions must be synchronized.
The learning is also applied: each participant will have the opportunity to prepare a presentation during the course of the program. They will also have the opportunity to deliver that talk, and to practice handling difficult questions. Each participant will receive lots of personal feedback, including videotaped coaching. The program will be customized using materials and examples drawn from the participants' presentations.
Each participant will learn to:
- See every presentation as an opportunity to influence.
- Assess their audience effectively.
- Develop a compelling, persuasive message.
- Create a logical, powerful argument.
- Use clear, conversational language.
- Use PowerPoint to support their message.
- Deliver with a confident presence.
- Respond appropriately to any questions or challenges.
