How to Persuade Anyone with a Masterful Stand-Up Presentation

Stand-up presentations are a physical activity. The better your delivery, the better chance you have to persuade listeners. Upon completion, in your next presentation, you will appear more sincere, confident and knowledgeable.

In this workshop, you will learn to master one of the most the powerful persuasion tactics: the stand-up presentation.  

With continuous feedback from the instructor and fellow participants, you’ll learn:

Delivery Skills—Physical techniques like stance, gestures, pauses, eye contact (not scanning) and voice projection (enthusiasm). You’ll learn how to channel nervous energy into positive use.    

Staging Techniques—See how to keep the focus on you. Discover why you must step away from the lectern, stand by the screen and work with your visuals to better connect with viewers. You, not the screen, must deliver the message.

Effective Visuals—Learn to create PowerPoint slides that reinforce your oral message, motivate viewers and insure that they remember your visuals. Word slides fail on all three objectives!

Q&A—Understand how to encourage questions, neutralize negative comments and involve the whole group. Looking at just the questioner while giving the answer is one of the many common mistakes presenters commit during Q&A.
