Everyone needs solid presentation skills. Even technologists have to present their work offline and in person. Are you hiding behind your PowerPoint or stepping into your power? Business presentations are notoriously boring, artificial, mind numbing and ineffective. But YOURS doesn't have to be. Join Marjorie Winther and Philly NetSquared for this interactive workshop if you want to become the presenter that people remember. Make your presentation come alive so that the audience wants to know more. Connect with people so they care about you and about what you are saying. Help your cause create maximum impact.
We'll learn how to:
· Create energy and enthusiasm with an opening
· Craft a personal story that connects with people
· Create buy in with interactions
· Manage Nerves (Take back your power!)
· Close so that the message is memorable
