Presentation Skills: Selling Your Ideas to Others
According to surveys, the one thing that frightens us more than anything else is giving a presentation in front of an audience. Crazy as it seems, we are more frightened of giving a talk than we are of dying! That's why 78% of managers say that learning how to present confidently in front of a business audience rates as the most valuable skill they've ever learnt. With it, you can persuade any group of people. You can impress a selection panel. You can sell ideas. You can move hearts and minds. Without it, you're just one of the onlookers.
