How To Give A Good Presentation -- Getting Your Audience To Listen!

2,071 views

Published on

IT managers often talk about the technology in far more technical terms than business people can understand (or actually care about!).

If stronger communication and integration is to take place between the IT and other internal business units, then IT needs to learn how to talk and listen very differently.

Dr. Anderson provides guidance about how to be a better business communicator focusing on how to create and deliver presentations that contain detailed technical information in a way that is engaging to a non-IT audience and allows you to better connect with business people.

For more information on Dr. Jim Anderson and his company, Blue Elephant Consulting, find out more on the web at http://www.BlueElephantConsulting.com
