Deliver compelling presentations in any context, from a meeting with colleagues to a client pitch or keynote address.
Whenever you talk to anyone, you are presenting yourself and your ideas to an audience. You are giving a presentation. This could be in person, on the phone, or via videoconference. In any case, both your content and your delivery contribute to the vitality and effectiveness of your message. Too many speakers fail to engage their audience and get their ideas across. Don't be one of them! Practical Presentation Skills will help you master the three fundamental elements responsible for a presentation's success: authenticity, focus, and strength.
