April 28, 2009

Topic: The Articulate Professional

Many professionals are hired for their technical expertise but find that once they land the job they are called upon to write a compelling proposal, make an effective presentation or, even worse, wow an audience of perfect strangers with a great speech. Writing coach Dick Weiss shares tried and true presentation techniques designed to engage and even entertain an audience. He’ll provide handouts with tips that participants can take home and apply in a variety of different ways on the job in e-mails, letters, proposals, PowerPoint presentations and in large and small group meetings. He will use many of these techniques in his own fun, fast-paced and interactive session.
