Killer Keynote Presentations

As STEM leaders we are often called upon to present technical and complex information. Whether in 1:1 interviews, in the boardroom or to audiences of hundreds, how confident are you in your ability to hold an audiences attention?

You know you've got them when you see smiles and heads nodding. You know you’ve lost your audience when you see fingers flying on cell phones, eyes glaze over or those telling long yawns.  Even seasoned presenters struggle to clearly translate dense information to audiences in presentations that are both persuasive and memorable. 

From boardrooms to grand auditoriums, over 33 million presentations are delivered each business day. And contrary to popular beliefs, performers are not born. Presentation performance is a learned skill – a refined ability as scientific as it is artistic. Superior presenters amplify innate abilities by employing proven techniques, strategies and systems.
