Beyond the Slide Deck: Creating & Delivering Great Presentations

558

Published on

Presentations are critical communications events for companies, because they're always given to inform or persuade, and the result of a presentation is almost always a decision. For these reasons, the quality of the presentation content, materials and presenting skills are major factors in achieving the desired results from a presentation.

A great presentation persuades and inspires; a poor presentation damages confidence in the ideas and the organization behind them. This webinar examines the three critical success factors for presenting - content, medium and delivery - and provides practical advice on optimizing each of these dimensions in your presentations.
