How to Give a Better Presentation — Tons of Tips

Most presentations are boring–no argument.

But can you market yourself and your business (or project or organization) with a better approach to presenting?

I think so.

In one of my other lives, I do presentation design and consulting with my business partner, Deanne Mott. Today we’ve released our new eBook, Presentation Renovation. In this 80+ page guide, you’ll learn how to create better messages, design slides that don’t look like boring PowerPoint templates, and how to deliver with confidence.

Great presentations really aren’t about the slides; they’re about connecting with your audience. Strong leaders and communicators know that, and it’s our goal to help you do better.

The book is on sale this week at 43% off–just $4. You can find the discount code here. We’d love for you to make better presentations (and so would your audience).

  • Time management
  • Effective communication
  • Setting goals
  • Building relationships
Learn to do those and you’ll have a far better chance of finding yourself employed in four years (or next summer or for your internship or…).
