Description

Don't Speak Like An Engineer - Think Like One Instead

Speaker: Mark Kretschmar

Presentation Synopsis (No PDH):

Mark Kretschmar is an engineer turned communication expert. After 15 years designing precision sensor technology, he completed bachelor's and master's degrees in communication studies. He noticed that communication is modeled the same way engineers model the physical world to be able to predict and control it. That means engineers could be great communicators if they could work from a model that's familiar. He developed EngineerSpeak to provide that model and now helps some of the biggest brands' engineers shorten their presentations, increase their value to their organizations, and be more effective leaders.

This presentation is an opportunity to match your communication skills to your formidable technical skills so your projects go more smoothly and your clients and corporate VIPs see you as more valuable. Often, project errors and delays are from communication issues, not technical issues. This presentation will show you how to view presentations as an engineering problem. Given an engineering lens, you can then use skills you're already good at such as analysis, design, and problem-solving. Suddenly, presentations land in an area of your strengths and you will be the exceptional engineer who excels at communication and presentations.
