DESCRIPTION

The process for developing compelling and memorable business presentations to any audience in any sector. Follow these steps to ensure you put the time and effort into the appropriate part of the process at the correct time. You always start with the end in mind, and only ever think about what the audience needs from the presentation and what actions you want them to take as a result of seeing and hearing your presentation. Use as few support materials as you can get away with but as many as you need to compliment your key messages. Avoid detail "Less is More" and give them pointers throughout so they know what to expect in terms of key messages, time etc. Contact me on 01963 240555 to discuss having this workshop run in your business
