Compelling Presentations

Is your presentation compelling?   Does your audience understand the benefits (and not just the features) of your great idea? Are the idea and call to action are clear? Do you feel confident in the message you are delivering?  By the time you walk out of this session, we are confident that your message will be clear and you will deliver it in a professional, compelling manner.

 

Controlling Questions

You finish your compelling presentation, stare at the audience and ask the dreaded question, “What questions can I answer?”

- Have you just relinquished control to the audience?

- How do you handle those long, statement, or hostile questions?

- What do you do when the upstart in the back defiantly asserts, “This is the dumbest       idea I ever heard!”

Learn the techniques to handle even the toughest questions and the secrets to staying on message.
