Persuasive Presentation Skills
The ability to influence and persuade an audience in a presentation distinguishes an average leader from a great leader and an average performer from an excellent performer.
An executive skilled in delivering his/her message across to get the results he/she desires is always perceived to be more capable and outstanding.
Being able to present effectively and persuade others to our way of thinking and to get agreement and buy-in is a critical communication skill which affects one’s career growth and success.
But many people do not realize how often they squander their opportunity to win by not delivering their presentations to their customers, partners, suppliers and supervisors in a persuasive and impactful way.
A study done by the University of Minnesota has shown that:
- “Clients are 43% more likely to say YES and willing to pay an extra 26% for the same services”
- if the presenter can deliver his/her presentations so persuasively and can make a lasting impact.
Persuasive and effective presentation skill therefore is one of the most important skills for every executive in today’s business environment whether they are selling an idea, a product or solution.
