Business Presentations Redefined. At some point in your life, you will probably find yourself giving a presentation in front of an audience. Perhaps it’s a major sales pitch or just a project overview; regardless, you’ll need the necessary skills and training to turn that presentation into a success. As many business people know, presentations are vastly different from formal speeches. Rather than a well-rehearsed speech, a presentation is a structured conversation with the sole purpose of moving the business forward. Unfortunately, the traditional resources on business presenters fail to make this distinction and focus on speechmaking. The Orderly Conversation, however, draws a clear distinction between the two and offers a fresh perspective on how to think about your presentations. As you read, you’ll learn how to rethink everything you know about presentations, how to avoid becoming a Nervous Perfectionist, and how to use visual aids to reach your goal.
