Anyone who works in a technical field will, at different points in their career, have to deliver presentations or speeches containing technical information. Most people would agree that just the idea of giving a presentation can be quite daunting. This feeling can be heightened by the presenter’s concern about whether the audience will even understand them!
These training course materials have been developed to help your participants plan and deliver technical presentations. They are therefore intended for anyone that may have to deliver technical presentations as part of their role.

Most technical experts or managers will at some time be asked to present their ideas to others. This can prove a particularly difficult task for people who may not be skilled in delivering presentations in the first place. Even those people that have experience of presenting may fall into common traps when the information they have to get across is data driven.
Delivering technical information to an audience that understands the detail of the topic you are presenting is one thing, but connecting with an audience that is not technically minded and has little understanding of your message is quite another. It’s easy to bore an audience with a jargon-filled presentation with lots of technical PowerPoint slides that people can barely see. How do you deliver a technical presentation that everyone understands? How can you present data confidently and get results? These training course materials have been designed to address these common concerns.
