Kathy McAfee, America’s Marketing Motivator, is on a mission to help working professionals, entrepreneurs, and leaders improve their presentation and communication skills.
In her latest book she provides proven strategies to produce results for yourself and your organization without relying on a slideshow presentation. These boring presentations suck the life out of audiences and cost companies millions of dollars in wasted time.
Whether it’s PowerPoint, Prezi, Keynote, or some other type of slideshow, these methods too often trivialize content and are used as a crutch. With the proven approaches in this guidebook, you’ll get the tools you need to:
- Deliver a message in a creative, innovation way that engages an audience;
- Make people want to listen to what you have to say;
- Build your confidence so you produce greater results; and
- Eliminate bad habits that block your path to becoming an effective communicator and a powerful presenter.
While it’s easy to remain in denial, global boring remains a huge problem. And it’s damaging your brand, your reputation, and your sales. Filled with insightful examples, stories, and powerful tools and templates, Stop Global Boring provides a blueprint to effectively communicate, influence, and motivate audiences to take action.
