“If you don’t know what you want to achieve in your presentations, those listening to you never will”
The right information: People can only relate to, and implement, what they initially understand. When presentations are not clear in organization and clarification, they risk getting lost or not being acted upon. The best messages are those where a listener thinks to themselves, “Ok, I get that!” That doesn’t just happen, whether you are face-to-face or virtual with your audience. Messages and ideas need to be clear and interesting. Why? Because your credibility depends on it! How does this message get crafted? It starts with the one design key that will change the way you put together your information.
To the right people: Knowing your listener provides you with clues so you deliver in a clean and concise manner, so they take notice. There are two primary things to learn about your audience that, when built into a presentation, will make your Q&A session run smoother. What if you have no information about those listening to you? Learn a technique to enable you to reach them with the concept of “shared experiences”.
Great information, delivered in a dry and boring way, might as well be emailed! Three foundational delivery skills are taught and demonstrated for the audience. A few volunteers might get the opportunity for coaching in an activity. Understand the impact your voice has on your message especially since we often present to global audiences. Your voice is your punctuation, and a primary delivery avenue for virtual formats.
In the right format: This changes constantly and you need to be agile to accomplish the same impact regardless of the format. Take the message and delivery skills you learned and quickly adapt them into different environments.REGISTER FOR LIVE EVENT » REGISTER FOR LIVE STREAM »
Instructor: Elaine Dumler
Elaine Dumler,CSP® formed the company, Frankly Speaking 32 years ago to work with people who wish to bring a sense of “craftsmanship” into their business presentations. This evolved into a series of presentation skill training and video coaching workshops entitled “Speak for SUCCESS!” which is now the foundation of the company. She and her teams present global presentation skill training for leadership development programs in Fortune 100 companies across 11 countries and the U.S. Military. One of her specialty presentation skill classes, “Dancing on the Glass Ceiling” is designed for professional women in leadership. Effective communication isn’t just a business skill! Elaine has written two books for military family leadership focused on communication during deployments, and smoother reintegration. She speaks for the Department of Defense at pre-deployment briefings and family readiness conferences. She has practiced “lean” communication having been interviewed in the media over 40 times. Her articles have been in over 80 international publications focusing on family/work management, resilience through creative problem solving, and strategies for employing veterans. As a member and past president of the Colorado chapter of the National Speakers Association, she served as the national chair of the Chapter Leadership Committee helping to train chapter Boards. She founded the Flat Daddy® project for children of deployed service members to help them recognize a parent when he/she returns. Elaine lives in Denver with her family and enjoys sharing what it was like to fly in an F-16.
