Course Description

In this lesson, ExecSense examines sure-fire tips and tricks used by the business world’s best speakers and leading executives that are guaranteed to enhance your impact the next time you give a presentation or speech, lead a discussion with colleagues or clients, or even want to steer a conversation or interaction in a specific way. Take the 40 minutes to learn how to communicate your message to groups of people both large and small by being mindful of your non-verbal cues, personalizing your content, and preparing effectively.

This 4-chapter lesson is led by an expert, Bill Addiss (Owner and Principal – Amherst Financial Training), and focuses on the importance of storytelling, messaging consistency, and credibility.

In this 40-minute session, you will learn:

  • How to present with impact by knowing your material, humanizing your content, avoiding outlines, and recognizing and minimizing inconsistency
  • A comprehensive breakdown of every step of the presentation process: beginning with preparation, going into the delivery of your message, and concluding with effective follow up
  • What you need to know about preparing for a presentation: using PPT effectively, “faking it until you believe it,” creating the “Holy Cow” effect, and personalizing your material
  • How to use storytelling tools to get your message across and make it stick by connecting potentially dry content to your audiences’ life experiences; why humor is a critical aspect of good presentations and how to leverage it
  • An in-depth analysis of the 3 major facets of great presentations: treating emotions as allies; using multi-media effectively; and being aware of pacing, posture, and punctuation
