Your company’s technical presenters face considerable challenges. They must know your company’s products cold, be skillful in running the software, and be adept at the picks and clicks. And they must also engage the customer, articulate key benefits, and present a calm and confident demeanor so others perceive them as a competent, committed, and trusted partner.
Today’s technical presenters must master the fundamental principles of presentation skills that are necessary to develop enriching, engaging, and long lasting partnerships with their users and customers. By having greater command of the presentation environment, technical presenters will be far better equipped to confidently represent their company’s product line, attract and retain customers, and increase the quality of the customer experience. If your technical specialists can be more confident and persuasive when in front of a group, they will be better able to contribute more readily to the company’s success.
