Presenting to Win: Making Effective Presentations to New Generations of MBA Applicants
This session will make you a better presenter in two important ways. First, you’ll learn to overcome the all-too-common fear of public speaking. Second, you’ll explore ways to connect with Millennials, whose fast-paced communications are driving today’s nanosecond culture (and your recruitment efforts). In addition, you’ll discover numerous tips and tricks to make you a great communicator, from incorporating video to creating PowerPoint slides that won’t bore—or blind—your audience. Finally, you’ll apply what you’ve learned by preparing to present your own story in 30 seconds or less.
