Do You Know How to Give a Successful Technical Presentation to Sell Your Ideas, Projects or Products with Ease?

Talking Tech: Skills for Technical Presenters

Technical presentations to your peers are fairly simple – you all speak the same language. But, what happens when you need to present your detailed, painstakingly researched, brilliantly conceived, cutting-edge technical material to an audience of … laymen?

Clearly, the ability to communicate with all types of audiences is crucial to achieve your objectives. Whether you’re presenting to grounded, business decision makers with their hands on the budget or any other lay audience, you’ll need to know how to make the information accessible to ensure they get it.

BRODY’s Talking Tech program provides invaluable skills for technical presenters, allowing you to step out of the tech world with confidence so you can sell your ideas, projects and products easily, effectively and profitably.

Here’s Senior BRODY Facilitator Bill Steele discussing strategies for how to best present scientific and technological information.
