You might think presentation skills are the LAST thing you need to advance your business or career.

And you’d be right. Making a presentation will be the last thing you do before you get a job, close a sale, sign a deal, lead a project, or even receive a raise. Why let all of your hard work slip away at the last, most important moment?

This fun and informative seminar is built around three simple keys to giving great presentations, plus a secret weapon to ensure your audience leaves the room focused on your objectives. The knowledge you gain will help you:

* Connect with your audience
* Speak with confidence and clarity
* Display ideas simply and consistently
* Demonstrate leadership in your presentations
* Move the audience to act on your ideas

You will learn:

* What must be achieved in the first few minutes
* How to handle nervousness
* What every lawyer knows about the conclusion
* Your visual aids can't speak for you, but they do speak about you
