How do powerful presentations solve your problems?
The short answer is they don’t on their own.

I have been paid to speak more than 2000 times since I began speaking professionally in 1991 and so I have learned a lot about powerful presentations.

Powerful presentations, particularly in-person, stir hearts, shift thinking, and inspire people to step-up their achievements. It is not what the speaker says that is crucial.

For sure death by powerpoint and people with poor presentations skills can harm your meeting or conference and they do sadly, all day, every day.

What really matters is what people hear themselves say to themselves and then what they do that they have never done before.

This is why presentations are the meat in the sandwich. The bread is what happens pre and post presentation.

I am meticulous in my research before all my presentations. There are two things I find out: 1) What is my client not doing that they know they should? 2) What does my client not know that if they did and took action would make a massive difference to their business results? I then craft my presentation accordingly.

What happens post presentation is equally important.
I tailor-make follow-through packages that ensure people take action.
