Building Powerful Presentation Skills
A Practitioner's Workshop Series Event
If you search for “top product management or product marketing skills”, you’ll find communications skills listed in the Top 10. Excellent communication skills are vital to you (and your product’s) success.
You need to persuade, negotiate, evangelize, advocate, sell, and train to diverse audiences in different contexts. Are you fluent and comfortable presenting at user conferences, analyst briefings, company meetings, customer training, industry groups or even TEDx or is there room for improvement?
Your key role in influencing strategy, decisions, and execution will depend on your ability to communicate in a confident and authentic manner. Building Powerful Presentation Skills is a custom designed workshop for members of the Boston Product Management Association who want to enhance their presentation effectiveness using techniques based on the latest research and real life. The goal of this training experience is for both novice and experienced presenters to build a toolkit of messaging and delivery techniques they can use immediately to communicate more clearly, concisely, and powerfully.
In this workshop, participants will learn:
Strategies for handling stress and nervousness
The formula for a high impact talk
Timing and pacing
Best practices in oral and nonverbal delivery
How to prepare and practice for a key presentation
