    By Corrie Miller In our last blog post we talked about why your presentation might fail to meet its objective (connect with your audience, convert the sale). One of the biggies: Bad slidedecks.

  • What Separates the Good Public Speakers from the Great?

  • Is Your Presentation Staying on Message?

    At the end of a session with a client I ask, “What did you learn today that had the most impact?” One common response is “Staying on Message”.
