Overview of the webinar

What is a powerful presentation? It’s is all about engaging your audience and creating a positive experience so that they will come away better informed, inspired, or influenced to think, act, feel in a different way.

While it could be simple/ complex, with few/ multiple slides, all presentations have three core ingredients:

  • Audience-Focus on who they are and their needs
  • Content: Make it straightforward, clear, and relevant
  • Self: Present yourself as prepared, poised and professional

However, successful presentations do not just happen. They must be planned, practiced and delivered in a way to “WOW the audience. There are 5 elements, sometimes referred to as the 5 S’s of success for an effective performance. They are:

  • Strategy: Understand your audience, who they are, what they need, what’s important to them
  • Structure: Prepare your content: Title, introduction, evidence, stories, visuals, summary, ending
  • Style: Deliver the content: Focus, body language, energy, word choice, pace, the10-20-30 rule
  • Spark: Quickly build rapport, credibility, enthusiasm, motivation with the audience
  • Self-confidence:Projecting calmness, confidence, and competence

Why should you attend?

Your primary duty is to understand what your audience needs to know and prepare the message and supporting materials in a way that delivers your message clearly and effectively. Don’t just talk in front of the audience. Stand up and Deliver!

While hard work and good ideas are essential to success, the ability to express those ideas and get others to join you is just as important.As you grow in your career, there will be times when you will need to make presentations.It could be speaking to a large group of peers or employees; or addressing a major client or prospect; or even influencing senior management for funding of a project; or some other situation.

If this thought makes you nervous, you are not alone. Jerry Seinfeld tell a hilarious joke that references how so many of us are terrified of public speaking that we would rather be in the casket at a funeral versus delivering the eulogy.

The “Good News” is, you definitely can develop the skill and confidence to Stand Up and Deliver!However, making impactful, insightful, and informative presentations does not necessarily comes naturally and even gifted speakers follow a formula or roadmap: It’s the 5 S’s for Success (Strategy-Structure-Style-Spark-Self-Confidence).

This webinar will cover each of the 5 S’s plus winning tips and techniques to deal with your nervousness and other concerns that are holding you back from making effective, powerful presentations in and for your organization.
