Presenting information clearly and effectively is one of the key soft skills, if not the most important soft skill for life, and especially in business.
Getting your message or opinion across is essential, and, today, presentation skills are required in almost every field of professional life.
If you are a manager, a technician, an engineer, a student, business owner or whatever, you may very well be asked to make a presentation at some point.
This can be something that not all of us relish.
This series of podcasts are meant to help you avoid some of the common mistakes that some presenters make, so that you can get your message across effectively and engage with your audience..
Everything that Sue and Chris talk about is about common sense skills that can be applied by anyone in a presentation, there are no miracle answers, just pragmatic tips that actually work.
After all, there is no point being the best student, manager, technician or engineer in your organisation if you cannot effectively communicate what you know and convince others.
Preparation is the most important part of a successful presentation and is a part that is often neglected by speakers.
This is the crucial foundation and there are no short-cuts to excellence.
