Superior Presentations Training for Engineers, Scientists & Technical Experts

How to speak so others listen, understand and act on your technical expertise.

Program Highlights
In this workshop you will learn how to:
  • Be understood by non-technical audiences
  • Overcome the dry mouth, nerves and adrenaline rush
  • Establish rapport and capture & hold their attention
  • Deliver your information so it is clear and believed
  • Use props, visuals and multimedia to reinforce your message
  • Open strong and close with authority
  • Handle questions more effectively
  • Make your key points more memorable
  • Deliver presentations that inform and persuade
  • Start and end on time
Speak the language your audience understands. Find the common ground to be listened to, understood and believed. As a technical expert, your message is important enough for you to ensure it is delivered in the most effective way possible. When the audience doesn’t understand you, you must change your delivery.

Give them the answers they need without boring them and killing them with techno-babble. Find helpful analogies and illustrations that clarify your message and remain memorable.

Your work with our Directors was just what we wanted and I appreciated that you used your extensive knowledge and skills in a coaching style delivery.
