Presentation and Communication skills are highly valued in our current corporate and business environment. Today more than at any other time in history, these skills are seen as critical to the success of organizations of all types. Historically perceived as “soft skills”, today these are valued as “hard corporate assets” and deemed essential to the professional development of the executive teams and outside sales force. The ability to present ideas succinctly and with absolute clarity are directly related to successful outcome of all business strategies.

Tom Otstot has developed coaching solutions to educate, develop and improve presentation and speaking skills in professional situations involving small to large groups. These skills are useful in any public speaking forum to any audience from employees to key accounts to shareholders, stakeholders, or the media.

In this presentation Tom will give a lively overview of why so many presentations fail, the key principles of effective presentation, and examples and techniques the audience can consider to improve their skills as a result of attending the seminar.
