Discover the five principles of high power presentations and step-by-step processes for using the principles so that you can get your message across to people in a way that gets them to want to make a commitment to you and take action.
Overcome the 3 major stumbling blocks to great presentations.
1) We don’t know what we don’t know. Research shows that 85% of our success in business depends on our ability to effectively present our ideas yet only 25% of people ever take a formal presentation course.
2) Most people confuse what an audience expects of us as presenters versus what they need from us in writing. This leads to presentations that people often refer to as ‘talking head’ which puts our audiences to sleep.
3) When people start out giving presentations they tend to treat them as a mental exercise, like giving a book report. In fact, powerful presentations are mostly a physical activity, more like playing golf or tennis.
