Eleven Deadly Presentation Sins: A Path to Redemption for Public Speakers - $0.00

Few things in the PR business are more important than the ability to present your ideas and programs in clear and compelling terms.

Solid presentation skills can help PR pros win new business, gain approval for projects and budgets, rally teams, motivate employees, and better position themselves as industry and community leaders.

Yet even professional communicators can succumb to the worst sins of public speaking, from listless delivery to lackluster content, from meandering stories to mundane visuals.

In this engaging and information-packed video, participants learn practical techniques to overcome the deadliest of presentation sins.

You’ll learn to:

  • Analyze and understand your audience’s needs and concerns.
  • Focus and structure content.
  • Find, shape and tell more powerful stories.
  • Invest your arguments with emotion to win hearts and change minds.
  • Create more compelling visuals.
  • Ignore common body language myths and focus on what matters.

Eleven Deadly Presentation Sins combines lessons from the worlds of business and entertainment to help participants give the performance of their lives, and to provide better speech development and delivery counsel to clients and executives. Sources of learning range from Seth Godin to Star Trek, Romeo & Juliet to Ricky Gervais, Steve Jobs to Saturday Night Live.

Whether pitching new business around a conference room table or addressing hundreds of peers in a ballroom, participants come away with greater confidence and skill when all eyes are on them.
