How I Can Help

Here is what we do to mke your presentation a great one!

REVIEW
I will look at a past presentation slide deck and give some improvement recommendations. 

Then I will have you quickly present some of it to me for my feedback.

DESIGN
In the design of your new presentation we will:

  • Assess the audience interests
  • Define the intended outcomes
  • Layout the topics sequence and timing
  • Set audience interaction points
  • Insert short stories to make key points
  • Create powerful visuals

PRACTICE
We will practice the beginning, middle and end of the presentation stopping for my feedback. 

Then we will practice the whole presentation and I will give you overall feedback on your presentation pace, energy level, engagment, voice modulation and hand gestures use. 

You will get a video  recording to refer to later.

After you do your real world presentation we will do a debrief to celebrate and perhaps capture some lessons learned for next time.
