Terra L. Fletcher presented, “Polished Presenting” to the Wisconsin Towns Association in Shawano, Wisconsin on August 10, 2017.
Our words, what people see in our eyes, face, and gestures determine the quality of our professional life. We’re judged, hired, and promoted not necessarily based on our skills and talents, but our ability to convince others we have said skills and talents. But this course isn’t public speaking 101. In this session we’ll provide best practices for content, design, and delivery of messages given one-on-one or to large audiences. With easy to remember tools and techniques, you’ll learn how to nail it every time.This fast-paced, practical session will boost your confidence whether you’re dealing with know-it-alls, unprepared participants, or have to speak after lunch. Learn how to better use the tool that is your voice, control your audience, utilize visual aids, make numbers sticky, and add real power to your PowerPoint.
