Presentation Advantage – A Franklin Covey Workshop

Presentation Advantage – A Franklin Covey Workshop

Wasted time, unproductive meetings, and lost opportunities occur due to poor business-presentation-style
presentations. The lack of powerful methods to inform and persuade is one of the greatest hidden and pervasive costs of the 21st century workplace.

This work session will help participants consistently deliver highly successful presentations. They will learn the skills and the latest neuroscience to better inform, influence, and persuade others in todays knowledge-based world.

Creating a purposeful shift in knowledge or behavior through successful presentations equips people and teams with the competitive edge.
