Make an impact! We all struggle to
be heard and remembered above the din of other voices.
Be effective and memorable with tips on presenting
your ideas. Your expertise alone might not be enough to be heard, these
days. We live in a society that has "heard it all before,” and it is
a challenge to stand out. Effective presentations make the difference.
It's all about knowing what it takes to create
a genuine relationship of trust with your audiences, then maximizing the
potency and effect of your message through the right balance of content
and effective use of persuasive structure and language.
Maximize your impact as well as that of your
message; Connect with your audiences and build a genuine sense of
trust and rapport; Get your listeners to feel the impact of what you're
saying, not just think it; Increase the power of every key message you
deliver, every key point you make.
Vanna will give us tips from her Speak to
Persuade™ program on how to:
- Be more than informative --
- Increase the potency of every key
message you deliver
- Establish credibility, project
- Connect and create a genuine relationship
of trust with your audience
- Use Vanna's "Fast Five Steps"
to influence thinking and get buy-in
Never be boring again!
