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.

Learning Objectives
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.
