In a study some years ago researchers found that on average the fear of public speaking was second only to the fear of death. You can’t do anything about death, but you can do something about speaking. By understanding what it takes to deliver a powerful presentation, whether to a hundred people or to one (who makes you incredibly nervous), you can start becoming comfortable with speaking.
In this presentation you will learn how to prepare presentations including understanding you audience (be it board members, managers, donors or just interested people), how to hone your thinking and prepare the information; how to manage content including what to include and how to organize it; how to design powerful PowerPoint presentations; how speak or present convincingly; and how to solicit donations.
