Persuasion and strong communication skills are major currencies of today’s business world. Those who excel at communicating through presentations accelerate their career, provide more effective team leadership, gain trust with peers and turn ideas into action. Presentations that communicate well use the timeless principles of Narrative to connect with and engage audiences. This workshop will teach participants how to structure a powerful, persuasive presentation using the Narrative principles.
Whether you are creating a sales presentation, trying to gain alignment among team members, or preparing for a cultural shift in your organization, having a powerful, persuasive presentation to communicate your ideas and gain engagement is critical.
This workshop is designed to help the participants understand how a powerful presentation is structured and give them tools to create their own effective presentations. The workshop is based on the proven principles of narrative and story structure.
Topics included are:
- Audience analysis
- Finding a common ground with your audience
- Developing your thesis / main idea
- Developing your call to action
- Gathering Content
- Learning and practicing the Narrative/Story Structure Method of organizing your content
Each section has a hands-on workout session. Please bring a presentation idea you are currently crafting so you can apply the principles to your presentation during the work out sessions. You will leave with a strong outline of your presentation, and tools for future presentations.
Another change you will see at this Roundtable is our breakfast. We will have a full, hot breakfast buffet with eggs, bacon, sausage, and all the other items you are used to as well. We will no longer be serving lunch. This will save a lot of food from being wasted. So arrive hungry!
