Sliding Into Excellence: Improving Technical Presentations for Higher Visibility

Transform your technical presentations and stop putting people to sleep.

Are you tired of your technical presentations putting people to sleep? Are your talks at work more likely to inspire the audience to check their phones than listen to you? Then it's time to retool your approach. That familiar slide template with a word at the top of the slide and bullets underneath is actually doing harm. It's boring. It's unprofessional. And not doing the heavy lifting it should to convey your complex work. There are much better ways. You can regain footing as a subject matter expert and technical leader by reworking old presentation habits for technical topics. Traci Nathans-Kelly and her colleague Christine Nicometo have found techniques that can enable you to recapture your confidence and provide technical information to both in- house colleagues and to outside clients in a clear, confident manner. The focus will be on how to transform slides, used ubiquitously in engineering work. Slides are the stepping-off point that allows for a complete reconfiguring of how technical and engineering work (management, too) is shared, dispersed, and archived within organizations. These techniques are not theoretical--they are being used successfully in engineering and technical firms around the globe. After learning this information, you will have some new techniques, easily adaptable to your organization, that will enable your and your work to shine.
