Powerful Presentations: Delivering Effective Communications, Comprehension and Calls to Action

2,582 views

Published on

When educators develop and present programs, we don’t do it to display our PowerPoint skills or to show off the speaking tips we’ve gleaned from the latest TED talk. True educators build and deliver programs to inspire and enable their audiences to help move emergency services forward. So where do so many go wrong? This program isn't about PowerPoint tips and tricks (although some are included). Rather, it demonstrates effective communications and message delivery techniques, tools for successful student / attendee engagement, and presentation of a compelling "call to action" designed to motivate attendees to effect positive change in the way that we work for, care for and protect our communities.
