Persuasive Presentations for Project Managers
One of the key skills required of project managers is the ability to give presentations. Project managers are called upon to present to their team members, management, customers, and other stakeholders. These presentations need to be highly effective and persuasive, often for the purpose of convincing reluctant or even opposing stakeholders that their buy-in is needed on a crucial aspect of the project. Yet, most managers are not trained in giving presentations—and they find this a very challenging and highly stressful part of their job. This course strongly emphasizes learning by doing. In class, create a short, persuasive presentation with fellow project managers and practice giving it in a supportive and fun environment. Explore tips and techniques for making your presentations interactive, engaging, and successful. Examine common pitfalls that all presenters face, as well as secrets and tricks of the trade for avoiding them. As a bonus, receive a PowerPoint template to help you easily get started, even if a PowerPoint novice.
