Presentation Skills: Educate, Inspire and Engage Your Audience by Michael WeissThe popularity of the TED talk has raised the bar for public speaking and presentations. Audiences expect to be educated, inspired and engaged whether they are sitting in a conference room or an auditorium. Yet too often presenters lack the skills to take command and deliver persuasive and entertaining pitches and presentations. The audience is the hero of the story and the presenter is their guide to take them on a journey. Like a one act play, a presentation is not a meeting, it's a performance. And it is the job of the presenter to respect the audiences' wishes, wants and needs. With the advent of smartphone, the job of the presenter to keep the audience's attention on them rather than on the tiny device in their hand has become increasingly more difficult. The purpose of this book is to inspire you to take the next step in your presentation skills and practice.

The poster is a conversation starter. Draw your
audience in with a catchy title and easy-to-read
main points and visual charts.
A good poster will give your audience an idea of
what you studied, and a craving to learn more. Provide
a link, QR code, or a paper handout to your audience
