presentation-technical Presentation Skills for Technical Professionals

Technical professionals in IT, engineering, medicine and other scientific areas are often called upon to deliver presentations to non-technical professionals or experts in other fields. It’s a challenge to explain complex information in ways that engage the listener and that’s easy for non technical people to understand.

Whether the audience is made up of clients, senior executives or co-workers, the speaker needs strong platform skills to get the message across.
The presentation could be:

  • a pitch to sell a proposal or acquire additional resources
  • information to update customers or colleagues on a new product/software;
  • instruction on how to use a new technology

Whatever the purpose, the technical professional must find an interesting way to present dry complicated information in a compelling manner. Being responsive to the audience is the key to success. Technical professionals have extensive expertise and strong focus. With these advantages, you can learn how to design and deliver winning presentations.
