When you read the words: Polished Presenter, what comes to mind? Do you think of an articulate speaker supported by clean, easy to read computer projected slides? Can you remember the last time you saw a polished presenter at a technical conference? What do you remember that made his/her presentation remarkable?
Turning a mediocre presentation into one worth remembering takes planning and practice. Speeches and deliveries that lack planning and practice miss the mark and rarely deliver effectively.
Presentations themselves can range from highly interactive workshops to lectures to webinars (voice over IP streaming audio with Powerpoint slides) to a hybrid of these, and without a clear vision and objective, you might not see the differences needed in the preparation!
