Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course is about the strategy and mechanics of designing an effective presentation and conducting a successful meeting within which the presentation is made. It does NOT cover verbal presentation skills or visual design techniques. Toastmasters and Dale Carnegie are two very well-known and well respected sources for gaining presentation skills while endless examples of creating visually compelling PowerPoint presentations abound on the Internet.


Students of this course will learn that a presentation intended to "give information" to the audience such as the announcement of a new policy or a new initiative would be much different from the one designed to "get information" such as getting feedback about a recent issue or event. But as simple as that sounds, you can break it down further into "give-information-with-no-discussion-expected" (such as the upcoming blood drive with the where, when, why details included) or "give-information-and-expect-a-lot-of-discussion" such as the company is changing health plans in the fall with a new premium and co-pay schedule.


Then there is the "brainstorming (problem solving) or strategic planning" presentation when you must filter the useful ideas from the flood of chatter that always results. Then there is the presentation that must be "persuasive so you can get something" such as additional resources or approval for a new initiative.


This 3 PDH online course is intended for professionals whose responsibilities include making PowerPoint presentations because that is the world standard. However, traditional flip charts can be used successfully with this same content.
