Maybe, you are wondering why I’ve added power presentations to writing your way to success in business and your profession.
Presentations are oral not written, right? So before we go any further, let me explain.
In these corona times, a successful presentation has become that much more difficult. Because presentations are made online in Zoom conferences or webinars. You can’t get the same rapport as with an audience right in front of you.
To be successful online, your presentation has to be be very well prepared to grab and hold the attention of your virtual audience.
This is why good, coherent writing is vital to a power presentation. It goes well beyond preparing a few slides and hoping for the best.
