Number of Participants: 12-15
Materials: Notebooks and handouts provided


  Effective Presentation Skills are essential for technical professionals to communicate their data, statistics, and facts in a well organized concise manner to both the technically sophisticated and technically challenged.

The key is to communicate clearly, concisely, and with confidence. Unfortunately, too many technical presentations fail to get the message across; too often, because many technical presentations are, simply put, boring.

There are several myths associated with technical presentations

  • Content is the only message
  • Audiences want all details
  • People expect technical presentations to be boring
  • Technical people expect to be lectured at
  • Data dumping is a requirement
  • The speaker is there to support his/her visuals
  • Visuals should predominate
