Presentation Intelligence: The Key to Speaking Confidently

This On-Demand event was originally presented on November 29, 2023 (60 min)


We’re all familiar with Intelligence Quotient (IQ), and most of us have heard of Emotional Intelligence (EQ). It might surprise you that there is another “intelligence,” which if not developed, can cause you to miss out on up to 15% of your potential earning power – Presentation Intelligence (PQ). Theoretically, it’s possible that you are missing out because your brain has you trapped in adolescence. Like EQ (and some say even IQ), once you understand how PQ works, you can calm anxieties, leverage your strengths, and grow your skills to speak confidently.

In this session, we share insights into six components of PQ, providing you with skills and opportunities to recognize when your inner adolescent is in control – and how to reclaim your hard-earned adulthood – allowing you to move forward and “take the stage.” You will gain a new perspective on the pillars that, together, form the foundation to power your presentation confidence and help you find your voice.

Attendees will learn

  • Understanding the connection between our brain and our preferences
  • How personality helps define presentation style
  • Overcoming resistance through persistence
  • Developing presentation “presence”
  • How to leverage “stage” physicality
  • The importance of preparedness
