Visit this section before your next presentation so that you can warm up your voice and have full control over what you sound like. There are also downloads to help with handing voice issues.

Presentations should never be "one-size-fits-all." Each audience you speak to deserves to be presented to differently.

Don't forget to download our handy audience analysis worksheet. Use it for every presentation.

You may be a subject matter expert in your field. However you will be judged on how understandable your message is.

"I thought the class was very very helpful. You know one key thing that I learned was the introduction of presentation. So I generally just say my name. From what I do blah blah blah and then I'm going to the presentation.

Today I had to do a corporate presentation to Germany and I used the tactic I learned yesterday and it was it was what is in it for me. I didn't begin the presentation with my name. I began with them. "Do you guys know what's the most valuable asset in an organization. Employees. We are." And then I went on about you know why our training was very useful and helpful. But then I used a tactic I learned the previous day to help me engage my audience's attention."

The site was extremely helpful for preparing a speaking competition at my work. For me as a Non-Native it was very easy to find what a needed. With the in person training and the videos I felt very well prepared and I came in second in the competition.
