Impactful Presentations

Connect. Captivate. Call to action.

Persuasive, memorable, and effective presentations are audience-centered, focused on value, and designed to connect your ideas with your call to action.

Making a truly memorable impact requires planning and practice. This 25-lesson course is broken into three sections, each containing in-depth discussions on fundamental communication and presentation tactics that apply to any public speaking preparation.

Take your presentations from good to great with a step-by-step approach that starts with analyzing your audience's needs and motivations. You’ll learn how to connect across communication preferences through design and delivery techniques that will help you convey your credibility and keep their attention focused on your message.

By the end of this course, you will understand how to:

  • Diagnose your audience to build messaging that speaks to who they are, what they know, and what they want. 
  • Design a captivating presentation that leverages structural and interactive elements that support your message and keep your communication focused on your objective. 
  • Demonstrate your credibility through delivery techniques that enhance your image, so audiences relate to you in a manner consistent with your objective.
