  • Why you should take the course.
  • How this course is different
  • Who the course is intended for
  • What you can expect upon completion of the course

A presentation can educate, engage, inspire and persuade people like nothing else.  It can be a catalyst for change, drive business or build community. But, unfortunately this is more the exception than the norm. Have your brilliant ideas not seen the light of day because of your fear of presenting? Have you managed to get in front of an audience but fell victim to the same ol' presentation? And then walked away feeling dejected because your message didn't have the impact or result you wanted it to?

It doesn’t have to be this way.


Why should you take the course?

Being able to give a great presentation is one of the most underrated skills out there. It’s one that you need to learn and master especially in today’s world. It's one of the few skills that can set you apart from the crowd and put you in the top 1%. Many studies have proved that there's a direct correlation between being able to present and earning higher income. Learning to give a powerful presentation will not only help you advance your career but it will also help you become a better communicator in every facet of your life.


Who is this course for?

This course is designed for students, employees, management, executives, business owners, self-employed, consultants/freelancers or anyone who makes presentations formally or informally. Which means you!

 

Why is this course different?

In this course we’re going to break tradition and bend some rules.  Using a proven learn-by-doing methodology, this course is going to teach you how to create a powerful presentation no matter what your topic is. I designed the course so that each element builds off the next in a step-by-step format. Each section is broken down into a series of short video lectures that outline key concepts and main objectives. Most of the videos will have a corresponding activity where you get to apply the knowledge you learned.  At the end of the course, if you've watched all videos, taken all the quizzes and completed all the activities, you will have crafted and delivered a powerful presentation that is eligible for a course achievement certificate.

Let's get started!


01:40

In this video you will learn:

  • Section and Lecture topics covered
  • Key objectives and goals of the course
  • What to review before you get started
  • Where to find additional resources and support

We start the course by building a strong foundation with what I call The Big Why, The Important Who and The Essential What. The Big Why helps you gain clarity on the overall purpose of your presentation. We then examine the importance of knowing who your audience is in The Important Who. Getting to know your audience is a critical element in ensuring that your presentation is relevant and relatable. The Essential What gets you to define your message and outline the core objectives. The first section wraps up by looking at how to create great content and use the power of story to get your audience to know, like and trust you.

After establishing a strong foundation we’ll dive right into key design elements that will enhance your presentation. We’ll examine how to make your content come alive, look at some powerful visual aids to support your message and review some cool tools that will help you show and tell your information.

The next section deals with best practices before your presentation and looks at what to do on the day of. I will share some tips about the butterflies – how to control your nerves and being prepared for the unexpected.

Then we get into delivery method by breaking down what to do in the beginning, middle and end of your presentation. We’ll talk about the best way to make a great first impression, how to handle questions and objections, and what to watch out for.

Section 6 deals with what to do when you’re presentation is done. How to follow up and review lessons learned. Also, how you can use your presentation as knowledge and/or marketing material going forward.

Then it’s up to you to get going and make the most of what you learned in this training.

Review the FAQ and support section before you get started for any help or questions related to the course.

The Bonus section will be used for additional tips, resources and insights. I’ll add to based on your input and questions. 

02:11

In this video you will learn:

  • How to get the most out of the course
  • Why and how the course is designed
  • What methodology to use to get the most out of the course

There are some pretty scary stats out there especially when it comes to self-study, distant learning or online training. How many times have you bought a book and never read it or signed up for course and never finished it? Let’s make sure that doesn’t happen with this course. 

I’m sure you’ve heard the cliché you get out what you put in. While I agree with this statement effort alone doesn’t guarantee success. Understanding how the course is designed as well as following a proven process will help you accelerate your learning.

The best way to get the most out of this course is to use what I call the watch-do-review methodology. That means this:

1.  Watch all videos in the order that they appear. I’ve broken them down into small chunks most of which are around 3 minutes long. Listen and Watch actively. The benefit of doing this course online is that you can pause the video and take notes. Write down main ideas and key concepts. Pay particular attention to material that I draw attention to or place importance on. Write down notes in your own words don’t just regurgitate mine. This will help reinforce learning much quicker.

2.  Do the activities after you watch each video. This is the most important thing you can do in the course. Applying what you’ve learned is where the real learning begins. This course is designed in sequence so that each lecture and activity builds off the next. Do not jump ahead to the next lecture until you’ve completed the corresponding activity for the video you just watched.

3.  Review. How many times have you read or done something just once and thought that was enough? Instead of trying to plow through on to the next lecture, take some time to re-watch the videos, review your notes, and go over the activities again. The sooner you do it the more likely you are to remember because it’s still fresh in your mind. Even by taking just 15 minutes to review what you’ve learned and applied can dramatically increase your retention and thus lead to greater success upon completion.

Use the Watch-Do-Review methodology and I guarantee you’ll get the most out of the course and have greater success.


00:53

In this video you will learn:

  • What you need to get started
  • Technical requirements for the course
  • Personal requirements for the course

So what do you need to get started?

From a technical perspective you’ll need a reliable computer or laptop, word processing application, and access to the Internet. You’ll also need a video camera, web cam, or smart phone to record your presentation. Review any of the requirements that the online school or course provider has.

From a personal perspective you need a topic, some knowledge and commitment. Ideally your topic should be something that your next presentation will be based on. If don’t plan on giving a presentation anytime soon, pick a subject in your area of expertise. Make a commitment to yourself. With a million distractions it can be challenging to find the time to go through the course and make the most of it. But if you can be disciplined enough to follow through it will be worth it in the end.

  • Create a topic for your presentation.
  • Compile information on your topic.

01:36

In this video you will learn:

  • What my personal guarantee is
  • The recommended requirements to be successful during and after the course
  • How to refund your investment

With all the distractions out there it’s easy to let your initial enthusiasm dissipate. When we’re introduced to something new it gives us hope that this could be just what we need to make our business, career or life better. But when we start to dive in and realize there’s actual work to do, our enthusiasm wanes.  There’s no magic bullet or secret sauce. It takes time and effort.

As your instructor I want nothing more than to see you succeed. Your success is my success. Knowing that I’ve added some value, given you some newfound knowledge or even just inspired you to take action is the greatest reward.

I want to encourage you to persevere and finish the course in spite of all the distractions or obstacles that stand in your way. Watch all the videos, do all the activities and constantly review. You’ve paid your hard earned money. You owe it to yourself to turn off the TV, stop texting your friends and checking your email. All that can wait.

My guarantee to you is that if do everything outlined in the course, and didn’t notice any improvement then I will refund your investment. All I ask is that you send me your feedback in an email explaining the reasons for requesting the refund and why you found the course to not be of any value to you. This will help me make improvements going forward.

 Being able to educate, engage, inspire and persuade people through a powerful presentation is one of the most underrated skills there is. It’s a skill that will not only help you in your career, but it will also have a huge impact on your life.  Let’s get started!

Section 2: Foundation
01:19

In this video you will learn:

  • What is covered in the Foundation section
  • What you can expect after completing the Foundation section

Taking the first step in anything new is the hardest thing to do because it’s outside your comfort zone. From great culinary chefs to professional athletes their success is a result of the effort and preparation they’ve put in before hand. Your success as a presenter is no different. In this section we’re going to look at building a strong foundation for your presentation.

First we’ll examine the three key elements to a great presentation: The Big Why, The Important Who and The Essential What.

The Big Why will help you understand why you’re giving a presentation. It sounds simple but it’s probably the most overlooked question. We’ll look at the importance of answering this question and how it relates to making your presentation more powerful.

The Important Who takes a closer look at your audience - how you can define them and why it’s important to understand who they are. You will build an audience profile that will include demographic, personal and work information that will help you tailor presentation to their needs.

The Essential What is about your message. We’ll look at crafting a great title to hook your audience and then build a strong core message that supports your hook.

Then we’ll dive in to creating great content and how to organize it. How to determine what to include and what to leave out. And lastly we’ll look at what makes a great story and how you can create one to have maximum impact on your audience.

At the end of this section you’ll have built a strong foundation for your presentation and ready to take on the next section.

04:25

  • What the Big Why is
  • How to get clear on what you want your audience to know, do and feel

Have you ever sat in the audience when someone was giving a presentation and thought why am I here? That’s your Big Why as a presenter. Why are you giving this presentation? Why should the audience spend their precious time with you? Why=Purpose.

As a presenter you are leading the conversation. You must be clear on your why otherwise how do you ever expect the audience to be? Knowing clearly what you want your audience to know, feel and do will help you craft the essential elements of a great presentation more effectively.

How well do you know your audience? What do you know about their demographic? Their age, gender, nationality, where they work, what they do. What Interests or hobbies do they have? What do they care about? What are their biases? What are their goals and dreams? 

Too many times we get wrapped up in our own ideas and take for granted the power of getting to know whom our audience really is. If you don’t understand who your audience is the presentation can go bad real quick – even if you have great content.

So how can you get to know your audience?
