How to Avoid Death by PowerPoint®

January 17

Learn tips, tricks, and best practices to avoid death by PowerPoint® and never deliver a boring presentation again.

Too many call their slides ‘The Presentation'. Many even build slide decks, filling in various details and data before focusing on the audience, what you want the audience to do, and what you want them to remember. The solution is simple, it's easy, it will save you time, and raise your stature, but it's not for the faint of heart because you can't read your PPT slides. But the ‘bar' is also very low. How many bad presentations have you seen? What an opportunity for you. Your opportunity is to have your audience leave the room thinking, if not saying, ‘Wow that was good'.

Learning Objectives

- You will be able to discuss how to improve your communications skills, something all business experts call a (if not the) key to success.

- You will be able to review short and long term strategies for diagnosis of your strengths, weaknesses and improvement.

- You will be able to identify how to find more opportunities to present to more audiences, raise your profile, and advance your career and possibly generate new (speaker) income.

- You will be able to recognize why it is said that you write for credibility, you speak for cash.
