Technical talks don’t have to be dull or boring. They can be lively, enlightening, creative, dramatic, impressive, interactive, audience-centered and memorable. By combing the basic elements of Effective Presentation Skills and focusing on the three goals and ten strategies of informative speaking, this workshop helps participants implement the tools and techniques used by successful technical presenters.

Participants deliver two technical presentations integrating audience involvement and participation, visual aids and questions and answer sessions. Both are videotaped and critically analyzed by the presenter, the program participants, and the workshop leader.

During the workshop participants are provided with tools and techniques for enhancing their presentation skills. At several intervals, attendees work in small groups practicing formats and delivery techniques. Each receives a comprehensive binder with tip sheets for enhancing their overall future presentation style.
