When was the last time you successfully explained what you do to someone unfamiliar with your work? For some, it’s a struggle. Explaining yourself and your work in a way that’s clear, compelling, and relatable can be hard! When you’re speaking to clients, upper management, people in government, the general public, etc., it’s a problem if they can’t understand what you’re saying and don’t know what they’re supposed to do after your presentation. How can you simplify complex ideas without talking down to your audience? And how can you influence people to respond to your presentations the way you want them to?

Presentation Skills for Brainiacs gives you the tools you need to develop easy-to-understand presentations that inform, inspire, and impel audiences! In this interactive session, you’ll learn how to simplify complex information, address the needs of your audience, and design clear, compelling slides. You’ll see examples of before-and-after slide makeovers that put these lessons into practice and get tips on presentation design and delivery.

Stop struggling and start connecting with your audiences!

The presentation will be followed by a Q&A session.
