Your presentation isn’t the only thing they’re watching
The art of presentation includes many things: voice, content, visuals and body language. Research shows that body language can make or break a presentation. Is someone too fidgety? Are they looking at the ceiling? An effective presentation not only has engaging content with appealing visuals, but the presenter is enthusiastic and confident in her presentation.
In the public relations industry, presentations are an opportunity to show the client and your executives the hard work and skills you’ve used for a campaign.
