On September 26th, author and professional speaker Dave Hill taught a workshop on presentation skills as part of SST’s professional development program. Dave’s topic ‘Re-Engineering Your Presentation Skills’ gave us insights that are universally helpful for all businesses. A few highlights from his talk include:
- Communicate, influence and engage others with relevant stories.
- Use as few words as possible on each slide.
- Deliver technical content using visuals or info-graphics.
- Treat conference calls or executive meetings the same way as a training or presentation.
Dave is the author of two books: Applause & Accolades: Attention Grabbing Presentation Skills and The Re-Engineered Engineer: Communication Skills for Data-Driven People. Learn more about Dave at www.davehillspeaks.com.
