Today’s Project Managers often experience ambiguity around their roles and responsibility to their employers, clients, and peers. Through "The Consulting Project Manager: The Synergy of Professions", Darryl S.

Today, individuals and organizations look for a competitive edge in a very crowded marketplace. To be able to stand before a group of clients, associates or superiors and deliver a confident, compelling presentation is a major competitive advantage – it is a true superpower. Typically, many of us are too afraid or too lazy to step out of our comfort zone and become better presenters. In this fun and interactive presentation, Tom Nixon will discuss how to become a confident and capable presenter while offering many ready-to-apply tips and techniques.
Participants will learn the critical importance of one-to-many live presentations in their careers and their organizations and will understand how they can build their confidence and communications superpowers.
Tom Nixon is a recognized expert on creating compelling, high-stakes presentations and coaching professional speakers, senior executives, TEDx speakers and subject matter experts to present at their very best.
Whether he is building a critical presentation for the CEO of a $40 billion company in India or leading a hands-on presentation workshop for public health experts at the CDC in Atlanta, Tom knows how to help others deliver powerful, persuasive presentations.
For over 3 decades Tom Nixon has worked with individuals and corporations of all sizes, helping them keep ahead of their communications needs. He has built a long and successful career out of being “creative on demand.” Tom knows what it takes to find, test and implement cutting-edge solutions to business problems. He has developed presentation tools and techniques to explore divergent ideas, collaborate with out-of-industry thought leaders and find and implement answers.
Tom’s lifelong combination of extensive design experience, his ability to distill a client’s content down to its essential core message, plus his love of live presentations gives him the unique ability to show his clients how to powerfully connect with their audiences.
Tom has two grown children, four incredible grandchildren, a crazy puppy and lives with Shirley, his wife of 40 years, in Marietta, Georgia.
