Read this the other day – too good not to share:
“Nothing is worse than a long, drawn-out meeting that feels like a trip to the dentist. The last place you want to find yourself is leading a snooze fest or a presentation that has people checking their watches every other minute.
Is this going to be YOUR presentation? I hope not!
To be an effective salesperson [presenter, speaker, decision leader, etc.], it’s important to master your presentation skills and learn to engage your audience effectively with highly targeted information that gets results in the shortest period of time.”
