This is so true!! First, own your personal presentation ... use those slides as accents - cherry on top! I love cherries, but too many make me sick!

Knowing YOUR product is crucial to sales success, yes. But as crucial is knowing something about the person or persons you'll be selling TO. A little preliminary research can work wonders!

When does all our accessibility -- phone, e-mail, text, etc. -- begin to negatively impact our productivity? It probably already has... Here are some ideas on how to "unplug" and get more done at work.

Quick speaking tip:  Before you think about your slide deck, plan the story you'll tell.  The slides are just the visual representation of your story. #salestips #speakingtips #powerpointtips

+Dean Brenner Another great article. I completely agree! Too often powerpoint is used as the basis of the presentation when it is only a tool. The Presenter is the expert and the presenter should be the focus. Powerpoint only adds to the story once you already have the story in place.

Looking for more confidence at your next #publicspeaking engagement? Think of it as a "conversation," not a "presentation."

Well I applied this at my last Toastmasters meeting when I was given a Table Topic and it was mentioned without me saying anything that my style was very conversational! Hee's a link to the video so you can see. Toastmasters Table Topics Speech by Roz Bennetts - BAD THINGS I should say that this wasn't my favourite topic so far and I found it hard to talk about but I kind of like the conversational idea, what do you think?
