Standing Ovation Presentations

Tuesday | July 23 | 2013 | 6:15 pm - 8:30 PM
Buckingham Ballroom, 3rd Floor

There is no faster way to directly influence large numbers of stakeholders than through effective presentations. But what are the ingredients of a great presentation? What makes listeners feel engaged, empowered, and ready to take action? How can you come across as comfortable, authentic, and even passionate in front of audiences of various sizes and demographics? This hands-on, highly participatory workshop will explore the distinctions between good and truly great presenting. Drawing on techniques derived from the art of training actors in theater, the session will provide you with a framework for speaking from your mind and heart directly into the minds and hearts of others. Topics include making a great impression quickly, facilitating group discussions, using PowerPoint effectively, and inspiring your audience to take action.
