Presentations Are...Part of Your 2012 Resolutions

What are your 2012 New Year resolutions?  Going to hit the gym more often? Eat more fruits and vegetables?  Cut back on the wine? (Oh, no...let's get that one off the list!)

How about resolving to do five things better as you present in the year 2012?  Nothing grand or undo-able. Just five simple changes that can reap big rewards. This year, resolve to: 

1. Tell a STORY and not just present data.
2. Come in UNDER your allotted time, not go over!
3. Cut back on slide junk and make slides that are  clean and UNCLUTTERED.
4. Remember, it's all about the AUDIENCE! And,
5. OPEN STRONG and CLOSE STRONG.

Presentations are a wonderful way to get your brand out there and engage with colleagues.  Have a great new year presenting your knowledge and passion!
