“Presentations in business today have become death by PowerPoint, with presenters telling and showing everything they know on their slideshow”
Holly St. John Peck will share with readers her insight into developing compelling presentations that move audiences to think, feel or do something different. “While business today is conducted quite differently than five years or ten years ago, the need to develop and deliver professional presentations is still a business-critical skill,” says Holly. “In the book, I offer realistic suggestions for becoming a competent and dynamic presenter.”
Specifically, Holly will focus on Speaking Simplified. “Presentations in business today have become death by PowerPoint, with presenters telling and showing everything they know on their slideshow,” she says. “Regardless if you have an audience of one or 100, your presentation should always persuade, motivate and even entertain, not overload with details.”
