Structure your presentation to speak to your listeners’ heads, hearts and guts, no matter the topic, and get to the point without getting lost.

A presentation without order and structure will confuse the audience – no matter how engaging and charismatic the speaker is.

This session helps participants create and develop a clear, concise and concrete message by focusing on bringing a balance of ethos (credibility), pathos (emotion), and logos (logic) to their work. Participants will take away a variety of structural approaches they can apply depending on the audience and the goal of the presentation. Content will include the importance of framing a presentation, powerful introductions and closings, use of data and statistics, and more.
