Our Presenter: Frank Damelio
When you speak you represent your brand. Learn how to nix the nerves and present with confidence, so that you leave a positive impression.
Discover how to avoid the four major stress signs that nervous presenters telegraph to their audience.
Learn the four common denominators that confident presenters share. Understand how to emulate these qualities even when you feel the pressure.
Attendees will walk away from this presentation with an understanding of how to convey confidence - even in high-pressure situations.
The value of hiding nerves and exhibiting confidence when presenting is two-fold:
1) When presenting a solution to prospects, the presenter becomes his or her brand. Avoiding signs of nerves and exhibiting confidence will make the brand more credible.
2) in most negotiations, the person who exhibits weaker confidence loses. A presenter who has mastered the techniques to appear self-assured will walk away with more from the bargaining table. Beyond nixing the nerves and emulating confidence, we will study various postures and gestures. In this participatory exercise, we will discover how to avoid appearing timid, nervous and weak.
