Leadership Presentation Skills

Transform your leadership presentation skills with proven strategies to break through and truly engage audiences.
How You Succeed – As a leader, you are expected to deliver compelling and engaging presentations that sell your organization’s brand, ideas and initiatives – and you have less than 30 seconds to engage an audience. However, just because you present, does not mean you are heard! Studies also show people have ever-shrinking attention spans and you are also competing with audience filters such as emotions, beliefs, perspectives, values, culture, criteria and more. Our presentation experts will show you how to break through these filters to immediately engage your audience, hold their attention and influence their thinking.
What You Will Learn – You will learn dozens of strategies to engage an audience:organization strategies, engaging PowerPoint, themes, sound bites, visual language, sensory language, props and much more. You will also greatly increase your Credibility and Likability Factors. The Credibility Factor has to do with presenting clear and compelling information, while the Likability Factor has to do with your approachability. Studies show emotions trump data when people make decisions, so you will learn how to avoid data dumps and engage people at an emotional level. A UCLA study reveals that nonverbal communication accounts for almost 90 percent of how people respond to you, and you will also practice how to transform your use of nonverbal cues.
Storytelling & Extras – Content experts say storytelling is quickly becoming the biggest business skill! It is a foundational skill to engage people, and you will learn the verbal and nonverbal strategies necessary to bring out your inner storyteller. In addition, you will learn how to be quicker on your feet, so you can comfortably handle a wide array of questions. If you have a fear of presenting, our presentation experts have a very high success rate helping presenters overcome fear. Leaders who once dreaded presenting – tell us they now look forward to it! Our goal is to give you the edge you need to be your very best!
