What is Presentation Skills for Project Personnel about?
In managing any project, presentations are used as a formal method for bringing people together to plan, monitor and review its progress. A Presentation is a fast and potentially effective method of achieving this.
As with any form of communication the importance is not placed on the transmission of information but the reception. The purpose is to convey accurately our own thoughts and feelings so that they are received and understood to mean the same thing.
The whole preparation, presentation and content of a speech must therefore be geared not to the speaker but to the audience. The presentation of a perfect project plan is a failure if the audience don’t understand or aren’t persuaded of its merits. The objective of a presentation is to make your message understood and remembered.
