Technically Speaking on 03/27/2010

Another in the series of recordings I have done for INETA Live.

This one is a bit special. It was a 1 day mini-conference designed to provide information to folks to improve there speaking skills. IMHO this is very important regardless of if you are presenting at a UG or demoing your work to coworkers, clients, or management. I would like to give a big thanks to Teresa Burger for putting the event together, to Woot (http://www.woot.com, go get your bag of crap NOW) for hosting the event, and to Improving Enterprises (http://improvingenterprises.com) for sponsoring lunch.

Abstract:

Learn to:

  • Overcome public speaking nervousness by gaining confidence in your presentation skills.
  • Present technical ideas and speak more effectively at user groups or technical events
  • Communicate your ideas more effectively using stance, gestures, movement, and voice.
  • Structure your presentations to emphasize and reinforce key points
  • Create visual aids and improve your use of them while interacting with your audience
  • Target your presentations to match your audiences by use of research techniques.
