Ready, Set, Present!

This On-Demand event was originally presented on August 25, 2021 (60 min)


Ready, Set, Present! You can have the best idea in the industry or the most powerful message in the room, but if you don’t present it right, it will fall flat. HOW we present is just as important as WHAT we present.

In this program, we’ll walk through crafting and delivering powerful presentations that immediately grab your audience’s attention, then spur them to engage and act. Notable takeaways include purposeful openings, time management, bringing complex ideas to life, and handling tough questions.

Participants will also walk away with an easy-to-remember solution for “on the spot” speaking. Our simple formula helps confidently and concisely answer questions whether they are asked of you during a large presentation or in a smaller meeting setting.

Attendees will learn

  • How to construct a powerful presentation opening.
  • Master on-the-spot speaking with a simple formula.
  • Witness the power of bringing complex ideas to life.
  • Discover how to properly plan presentation timing.
  • How to identify their audience and specific needs.
