When was the last time you successfully explained what you do to someone unfamiliar with your profession? For some, it’s a struggle. Explaining yourself and your work in a way that’s clear, compelling, and relatable can be hard. When you’re speaking to clients, upper management, people in government, the general public, etc., it’s a problem if they can’t understand what you’re saying and don’t know what they’re supposed to do after your presentation. How can you simplify complex ideas without talking down to your audience? And how can you influence people to respond to your presentations the way you want them to?

Presentation Skills for Brainiacs gives you the tools you need to develop easy-to-understand presentations that inspire your audiences to take action! In this interactive Talk, you’ll learn how to simplify your presentations and how address the needs of your audience. You’ll learn why less is more when it comes to slide design. And you’ll see before-and-after slide makeovers that put these lessons into practice.

If you want to learn how to successfully communicate with and influence people outside of your profession, then Presentation Skills for Brainiacs is for you!

Well presented. A few slides had slight contrast issues thanks to the less than optimal projection setup, and audio was quiet for similar reasons, but those are venue issues rather than talk issues :)

Thanks for a great talk, Laura! It was super useful, and you really demonstrated the techniques that you taught. Thank you!

This was a great talk with lots of actionable information. Laura is a strong speaker and very engaging. Her points were well illustrated in her own presentation.

Fantastic talk with great information.
