“Death by PowerPoint” is in the lexicon for good reason. Giving a great presentation is about engaging an audience, which requires understanding who that audience is and what they hope to gain by listening to you. Skills developed when overhead projectors were the norm are critically important for some audiences, yet are rarely cultivated today when the audience is virtual. Join Mark Jones, Executive External Strategy and Communications Fellow at Dow Chemical, in order to discover the keys to effective presentations like knowing your audience, recognizing limitations, and overcoming those limitations.
