Many engineers experience a kind of stage fright when they make presentations in front of groups, whether small or large. Their hands shake, their palms sweat, and they have a tendency to rock back and forth. But they may think there is nothing they can do about these physical tics.

The success of an oral presentation depends on both the clear verbal information conveyed by the presenter and on the clear visual information conveyed by graphs, charts, tables, and other visuals. Unfortunately poor visuals can cause confusion when the presenter ignores the conventions of displaying information.

How do you present technical information to non-technical people? Many engineers are tempted to "dumb down" technical content for non-engineers, often creating over-simplified presentations that insult the audience.

The Power of Presentations is a webinar designed to help you address these issues.
