Presentation Skills for IT Professionals

Presentation skills of great value to IT professionals, managers, and executives at all organizational levels. By their nature, presentations are given to people you are trying to influence, impress, receive agreement from, and/or motivate. As a result, the ability to present well in front of others is not the goal; it's a tool to meet your business and professional objectives.

This class, which is customizable to your business needs, was designed by the past president of National Speakers Association New England and is designed to enhance your business presentation skills, including your preparation and materials (PowerPoint slides, etc.), giving the actual presentation, and controlling the room during the process.
