New York, NY (PRWEB) January 4, 2007
Presentation Excellence, a resource center providing presentation training and strategic consulting services for executives, announced that a full-day Presentation Mastery Workshop will take place on February 15, 2007 at the American Management Association building in New York City.
The Presentation Mastery Workshops is designed for senior executives with management, sales, marketing, investor relations and related responsibilities. It focuses on four areas affecting presentation effectiveness:
- Substance - What's Important Now versus what's distractive clutter
- Structure - Organizing content to flow to its logical conclusion: motivate action.
- Style - Keeping language simple yet powerful, use attractive supportive visuals, be aligned with the speaker's style and resonate audience's needs.
- Speaker skills - Coaching speakers feel confident and generate enthusiasm by overcoming public speaking fears and learning to control the interaction with the audience.
The workshop is designed for presenters who speak to large and small groups and /or make one-on-one presentations, in person or virtually, though the internet (e.g., Webinars and web conferences).
Leading the workshop is Jerry Cahn, Ph.D., J.D., president of Presentation Excellence, which services investment banks, venture capital firms, Fortune 500 and other companies committed to delivering winning presentations. An industry veteran, he's the former CEO of Brilliant Image, a leading presentation graphics firm which had serviced 5000+ clients during 15 years, and past president of IAPP, the industry trade association. In addition to designing presentations and training, he is a sought-after public speaker, offering keynotes and Webinars on topics related to business development, sales, communications and personal development.
The format of the program is fluid. Prior to attending the program, attendees submit a needs assessment survey and a sample PowerPoint to use in the class. The morning focuses on teaching the fundamentals of presentation effectiveness and address typical challenges faced by presenters. In the afternoon, each attendees presents their presentation, evaluates it in light of what's already been learned and gets feedback from the group, a videotape and the instructor. After the workshop, attendees can edit their presentations and submit it to Dr. Cahn for more feedback, as well as request personal coaching to address specific needs.
