Finding Your POWERful POINT

Recast of Webinar 7/31/12


Find out how to energize an audience, become comfortable with improvisation during Q&A, and make explanations of complex diagrams fluid. Most people use PowerPoint in a way that exaggerates their weaknesses instead of playing to their strengths. The dirty little secret is that we all present differently. There are six “Presenter Types.” Knowing yours is the secret to effectively engaging your audience and becoming better on your feet. Learn how to successfully communicate in the most powerful and direct way, using your strengths to your advantage.

Thanks to all who participated in the Webinar and the great feedback.

    A great help, was getting really nervous about getting back to college in a couple weeks and getting to do all those lovely presentations again… I am a writer, and love writing and designing presentation and essays on anything, seriously!! My problem is when I have to get up and talk about it… knowledge jumps out the window and takes a hike. Thank you!! Extremely helpful!

    I think that we are to many times to little focusing on viewers feedback (body language,…).
