Presentation Skills Webinar on February 23

Posted On: 1-25-2017

Do you make presentations? How about others in your organization? Are the presentations perfect? Could they be made any better?

We think that the answer is … probably. And it doesn’t make any difference whether the presentation is technical training or being made to customers, employees, engineers or a board of directors. You have information you want to share and you hope your audience is receptive, attentive and will recollect what you said for some time after you have finished.

Now EGSA  can help …… Here are the details of the 90 minute webinar:

Testimonials from attendees of this same webinar, held June 1, 2016:

“Very professional presenter and presentation.” Anthony Sharp, Stewart & Stevenson

“Excellent Presentation with an outstanding lively discussion. Great tips for the first time presenter to the seasoned vet.” Matt Bentley, MTU Onsite Energy Corp.

“I found out I was doing a few things correctly (totally by accident) but could improve in several areas.  Since this class, I have spoken at three events to as many as 100 people at a time.  Next week will be closer to 300 at one time.  Understanding the typical attention span of adults, the importance of stories to convey ideas, and the need for audience involvement, all helped in my delivery and feedback ratings.  I can quantify this because for the last five years we have surveyed our class attendees.  I have typically done well, but the scores have improved since the webinar.” Richard Knittel, Prime Power Services.

“Excellent presentation, very relevant for instructors and a phenomenal instructor.  Bill was able to keep the attention of the audience and left lasting impressions. We have already implemented changes in a few presentations as a test and will be re-evaluating our entire course offering at the end of the year. I am working with the instructor to arrange a multi-day workshop later this year.” Michael Sanford, Cummins Power Generation
