Webinar Wednesdays

Thought Leadership Community


July 2014

Dear Readers,

Those looking to boost the impact of the presentations they give every day in the workplace should mark their calendars for Tuesday July 29, when presentation expert Simon Morton delivers a free webinar sponsored by Brainshark.

Morton believes the presentations most critical to the success of organizations today aren't the ones you deliver on stage in front of hundreds of listeners. They are the ones you deliver every day on a smaller scale, be they training sessions, project updates, sales pitches or financial reports, seeking to connect with audiences and drive action.

The webinar, hosted by our sister newsletter PresentationXpert, will be based on Morton’s critically-acclaimed book,The Presentation Lab: Learn the Formula Behind Powerful Presentations, and is designed for the everyday presenter seeking practical tips to drive results. For more information or to register for the July 29 webinar, click here.
