Organizations today use presentations both to deliver their messages to customers, conferences and trade shows, and to carry out internal development of both product and strategy. Although technical professionals bring technical mastery to these challenges, their presentation skills frequently limit their performance. This is a hyperbook packed with tips that show how to create terrific technical presentations.

If you or the people in your organization make technical presentations, chances are good that they're doing it without training. Some are naturally good at it. A few have had presentation skills training, but even fewer have had training for technical presentations. Terrific Technical Presentations fills that gap.

Ideally, we'd like technical professionals to present their own technical content. Only they have the depth of understanding needed to project true credibility. But too often, the presentations of technical professionals are ineffective. They fail to focus on the customer perspective, they ramble, questions sidetrack them, or they run over time while failing to make the most important points

If a demonstration is involved, sometimes the equipment fails, or the product doesn't work properly. If the product is software, debugging alerts appear. Too often, we hear "Just ignore that."

Through it all, we often see too much emphasis on the beauty or elegance of the product, and too little emphasis on how it can help the customer

This program gives technical professionals enough of the savvy of the professional presenter to make their technical presentations terrific. It teaches your most credible employees how to deliver your message effectively — to peers, to management, to customers, and to industry

Terrific Technical Presentations is designed for technical professionals and their managers. It's ideal for anyone responsible for delivering technical material in settings such as customer calls, conferences, trade shows, or reviews. It's especially useful for people who deliver presentations to senior management.

You get a stand-alone Web site, complete with its own search engine. You can peruse this site with your Internet browser. Included are dozens of tips and insights on topics such as: creating powerful Powerpoint, paying attention to logistics, and how to create terrific demos for small audiences. For example, for Powerpoint presentations: you don't need your corporate logo or your contact information on every slide. First and last only, if that. And ditch the outline. Replace it with bullet items that intrigue and motivate. Use a dark background, with light-colored type. A bright screen can make it hard to see the presenter, so use a dark background with light colored type

We're continuously improving the content of Terrific Technical Presentations. We distribute periodic updates, which you'll receive for one year.
