Workbook Description

Learn how to 'PRESENT'

The PRESENT system is for professionals who want to deliver outstanding presentations.

P - Prepare Your Content
In this step you'll learn how to enhance your research skills and build powerpoint slides that have the right amount of detail to truly engage your audience.
R - Rehearse Your Presentation
In this step you'll learn how to use video to record yourself and identify the top three things you need to remember as a presenter. You'll also get practical tips to help you speed up the rehearsal process.
E - Engage Your Audience
This step will help you start your presentation off with a bang! In it you'll learn how to highlight the most important part of your presentation, so you can grab your audience's attention and hold it for the rest of the presentation.
S - Storytelling is Key
Too many presentations get lost in technical details. So in this step you'll learn how to find compelling stories that can be used throughout your presentation to get your main points across.
E - Educate Your Audience
Many professionals know a lot about their subject matter, but they aren't quite sure how much to include in their presentations. So, in this step, you'll learn the rule of 3 and how to make sure that the audience walks away with the most important things they need to take action.
N - Nail It With A Great Conclusion
People won't remember most of what you said, but they will remember how you made them feel. So, in this step you'll learn how to make a strong final impression on your audience.
T - Track Your Progress & Improve
In this step we'll help you determine the main areas you need to work on to deliver effective presentations. You'll also learn how to diarize your results so you can make continuous improvements in the future.
