'Women Techmakers' and 'Futures of Learning' Vancouver chapters are coming together in June to discuss an extremely important yet unnoticed skill that will help you grow your career in an exponential rate: "Visual Presentation".
How you present yourself and your ideas is an essential skill in the 21st century, one that has the power to make or break your career as well as affect all areas of your personal life. Are you presenting information to peers, pitching an idea, trying to persuade your boss to give you a raise or making your case to your partner for getting that puppy? You may know your material really well, but you also need to know how to present it in a way that is confident and engaging.
Whether your aim is to teach, engage, persuade, inspire or illuminate, we will show you how to present in a way that will make your audience sit up and listen rather than fall asleep from boredom or get a headache from your copious bullet points and hard-to-read graphs. You will come away with practical and immediate tools to turn a potentially nerve-wracking experience into something that is natural, pain-free and quite possibly enjoyable!
