Make your presentation memorable
Whether you are presenting to an audience of hundreds, or just your professor, every detail matters. In this series of videos, Frank Center tutors explain tips and tricks to make your presentation the best it can be. Each series is specifically tailored for a different part of the process: creating your pitch, designing your slides, and presenting yourself.
In your Business Communication and Protocol class, you may have the done the most research. In a business meeting, your idea may be the greatest thing since sliced bread. But when you're presenting your ideas and research, you need to make your audience care. This is where "The Pitch" comes in. If you don't make people care about your ideas and convey them effectively, your audience may miss the most important parts.
Polish your slide design and presentation skills with this video series brought to you by Iowa JPEC and the Frank Business Communication Center.
