10 advanced speaking tips to super-charge your next presentation

This advanced course offers pro tips to help communicators take their next pitch or presentation from good to great. It’s also designed to help them help their leaders and clients present more effectively. I believe that as communicators we are at a crossroads. Because of TED Talks, the rules for speakers of every kind, from conference presenters to everyday PowerPoint users, have radically changed. Those who don’t adapt risk getting left behind. And few things in our business are more important than the ability to present our ideas in clear and compelling terms.

This session will cover some of the latest techniques for creating and delivering riveting content that makes a real impact on audiences and gets results.

The audience will learn:

  • How to avoid reputation-killing content clichés.
  • Physical actions to amplify their message, including gesture, movement and vocal technique.
  • Ways to make technology your friend instead of a foe.
  • A five-step process for rehearsing the material.
  • How to recover from mistakes that could derail a presentation.
