We are living in a world where Steve Jobs was a modern-day hero, Al Gore won an Oscar for his Inconvenient Truth presentation and the TED conference is the place everyone wants to be each year
This class is will teach techniques that can be used across a variety of platforms - whether you are doing a company presentation, pitching to an investor/client or speaking at TED. Thanks to this leadership style, the bar for presentations that convey world changing ideas is set incredibly high. This class is designed to help you clear that high bar with confidence, grace and skill.
Creating meaningful presentations can be tricky, time consuming and nerve wracking, but by focusing on the key elements in this class, you too can give a TED worthy presentation.
This class is designed to cover the following topics:
Audience: understanding your audience
Stickiness: creating unique messaging that sticks
Authenticity: remaining authentic so your audience trusts you
Tools: using the right tools - both offline and online
Deck: 3 steps to building your presentation - preparation, design, delivery
Follow up: sending the right materials as a follow up (and it's not just your noteless deck!)
By the end of the class, you will have everything you need to create a strong presentation that is simple, easy to understand, exciting and visually stimulating.
