A presentation is a conversation. People come to hear you talk, not to be lectured. A great talk is the most powerful way to persuade people, to excite them, to encourage them and to energize them. Mike Neumeier, APR, principal, Arketi Group, reveals the simplicity of an effective presentation, and shares the nine words and three tips that make for a captive audience and business success. You will learn:

  • How to remove technology from the planning process to develop great-sounding ideas that win people over.
  • What it takes to simplify presentation slides and keep the focus on the presenter.
  • The strategies unlocking business success through a “talk” that resonates with the audience.
