How to Present Technical Information so People Will Understand, Care, and Remember

The SPC and WEST are partnering to bring you this workshop. Please note this workshop will be held on a Thursday evening, not our usual Monday evening.

Technical presenters need more than public speaking training to keep an audience’s attention. If you explain complex concepts to people outside your field of expertise, you’ve learned snazzy slides and polished prose aren’t enough to keep your audience engaged.

In this session, you will learn a proven process to structure your technical talk so your audience understands, cares, and remembers. You'll also get access to a planning worksheet you can use to make your presentations memorable and understandable.

Attend this workshop to:

  • Hear how to capture and keep your audience’s attention by using the three “cons”
  • Find out how to make your “big idea” remembered, repeated, and retweeted
  • Learn how to use business storytelling principles instead of boring bullet slides
  • Discover techniques that make your technical topic easier to understand
