    TOPIC:        Presentation Skills for Technical People – Get Noticed, and even promoted!1 hour CEUs


    What’s in it for me?

     Here’s an (incomplete) answer:


    •          Envision being able to take a speech or presentation concept and develop the structure and outline within minutes.

    •          Imagine an audience that is sitting on the edge of their seats, listening to your content and stories, and laughing at your humor.

    •          Visualize people who come up to you several years after a presentation and say, “I remember your presentation; your points and stories really impacted me.”


    As engineers we must frequently present the results of a study, the details of a particular design, or our point of view on a strategic move. There are boring ways and there are vibrant, result getting ways of presenting. Any one of us, either a seasoned presenter or a newcomer into the engineering field, will benefit this presentation, made by someone who is a highly effective, and experienced presenter himself. Come on Tuesday the 26th; we will learn from the expert!


    Do not miss the meeting!
