How often do you walk away from a business presentation with an unclear idea of the purpose of that presentation? There is no excuse for a dull presentation - even in the business environment. In fact, presentations in the workplace may be the most important to you! A lot of your own success in the workplace depends on your presentation skills and your ability to clearly explain your ideas. The central goal of any presentation is to communicate. Effective communication is achieved when ideas are shaped simply, concisely, and interestingly.
