This course will help you prepare for and make critical and high-impact presentations to your boss, a group of executives, customers, prospects, or others who can have a significant impact on your career, company, team, or project. Preparation is key, the presentation is your opportunity to shine, and the debrief and follow-up help ensure you capitalize on opportunities.
In this course, we talk about concepts and techniques to help make your critical presentations as good as they can be, and to not miss opportunities after your presentation. In the first module, we focus on preparing for the presentation, from stories to your first impression to researching the audience. In the second module, we talk about the actual presentation, including tips from my perspective as a professional speaker. In the third module, we talk about debriefing and follow-up, and ensuring that you don't let opportunities slip through your fingers.

Course Overview Hi everyone, my name is Jason Alba. Welcome to my course, Presenting to the Bosses. In 2006, I started a company to help job seekers organize and manage their job search. My website, jibberjobber. com, also helps non-job seekers nurture network relationships over time. I'm passionate about professional development and have over two dozen courses on Pluralsight. Have you been asked to give a presentation that can change your entire career or a presentation that can make or break what you're working on? That opportunity is exactly what we're going to address in this course. We'll talk about what you can do to best prepare for your big opportunity and tactics to help you deliver the best presentation you can. We'll also talk about what you should do after the presentation so you don't have missed opportunities. The end result of these tactics is that you make the most of this opportunity, make a great presentation, and accomplish your goals whether that is to get more funding, make a sale, getting a raise, or simply educating your audience with knowledge they need. By the end of this course, you'll know what you need to do to give a great presentation and how to capitalize on the opportunity after the presentation is over.
