Making Great Presentations
By Hal Portner
Here's the thing about making great presentations... they are planned. Some new presenters-and veteran ones as well-will make good presentations without much planning. But when you have thought through the particulars of what you will present, when and how you will present it, and how you will manage the presentation, chances are it will be great.
Even when your presentation is well planned, knowing how to manage stage fright and hecklers, and engage the audience can add to its success.
Making Great Presentations is chock full of exercises, examples, and tips that will help you prepare and deliver compelling and engaging presentations.
Making Great Presentations guides you through the all-important first step of clarifying the purpose and objectives of your presentation. Once this is done, (Managing Your Presentations) takes you through the PACEs of planning your presentation.
You will discover ways to create and sustain interest and participation in your presentation; learn how to make and use effective handouts and PowerPoint ; slides and examine innovative ways to capture and influence your audience.
Taming those butterflies in your stomach, effectively using the power of body language, and comfortably managing yourself and your environment... that is what brings a well-planned presentation to life. That is what this book is all about.
