A presentation is the most powerful means of delivering a message. No matter whether one makes a presentation to one person or to a million people, the effectiveness and the style matter like nothing else. A powerful presentation speaks more for the person making it than for what it delivers. A person who has the art of delivering an effective presentation is highly valued and esteemed.
It is estimated that the content of the presentation matters to a small extent-only 15% of the effectiveness. The rest is accounted to the skill or the way in which the content was presented. This underscores the importance of a solid presentation. Having said this, does making an impactful and effective presentation depend on complex factors?
No. This is an art that can be imbibed even by people with minimal presentation or communication skills. The ways by which they can refine their abilities and deliver killer presentations will be the content of a ninety-minute webinar session that is being organized by TrainHR, a leading provider of professional training for the areas of human resources, on September 11.
