About our guest speaker:
“Making Presentations…Successfully!” – by Peter Baker, CAP, C.Tech.
As humans, concise, precise & succinct communicating & communication ability is a critical & necessary part of life. Most of us are pretty good in one on one conversations with no time limit or text messaging or Twitter feeds, however, the game can change radically when a) the ratio of active participants changes; (b) the subject matter becomes more defined c) the time is limited and/or d) there is an expected purpose or result.
This seminar (mathematically based on K3 –Know yourself, Know your Audience & Know your subject) will cover presentation skills useful in training, new product introductions, technical concepts & ideas projects and pretty much anything else you want. We will discuss subject preparation, presentation strategies & formatting, technical tools, lalophobia, summaries and final discussion/questions. Peter Baker has been presenting for decades on a wide range of subjects across locations from China, the US & Canada to Mexico.
