What makes a good presentation? When should and shouldn’t you use a presentation to communicate your ideas? Why do most presentations suck?
On this week’s episode of the Mind Tools L&D Podcast, Ross D and Owen are joined by Andrea Pacini, Head of Ideas on Stage and author of Confident Presenter, to discuss:
· why so many of us feel nervous about presenting
· the importance of tailoring presentations to the action you want your audience to take
· how to use the pSCORE method to deliver better presentations
