Complimentary Webinar: Pop & Sizzle! How To Create & Deliver A Dynamic Presentation

On-Demand Training

$ 0.00
The registration fee includes institutional access to the recording for one year.

Delivering a dynamic presentation does not have to be a mystery. First and foremost, a presentation is never about the speaker. It is always about the audience members. The difference between a miserable presentation and a powerful, engaging program comes down to preparation and respect. When presenters take time to know their audience, their mission, and their topic, they show respect for the people in front of them.

It is also important to realize that great presentations do not end when the audience leaves the room. What are you doing after the lights go out to reflect on your presentation? How are you growing from what you do well, and what you do not do so well? This webinar will unlock the answers to these important questions and offer participants the insightful resource and list, The Top-Ten Biggest Presentation No-Nos!

Whether your audience is a classroom of students, a small focus group, or a packed auditorium with colleagues, following key strategies during your session will help make your message remarkable. Participants will be able to identify the appropriate planning questions to ask and answer before you ever step in front of your audience. We will also examine some basic yet often overlooked strategies that will transform your presentations.

  • Understand which characteristics make presentations forgettable
  • Embrace the characteristics that make powerful presentations remarkable
  • Analyze key planning questions to ask and answer during the preparation stage for a presentation
  • Examine five strategies to help make your message pop and sizzle
  • Identify five strategies to create an interactive presentation
  • Discover how worst practices can be used to nurture best practices

  • 2 & 4-year, public & private institutions
  • Academic Affairs
  • Student Services/Affairs
  • Faculty (2-year & 4-year)
  • Anyone who is interested in learning more about creating an awesome presentation
"The effective presenter understands that pop and sizzle only have meaning when there is meat to a presentation. This requires attention to the three phases of presentation development and delivery: before, during, and after."
