Are you interested in understanding the logic behind creating a Presentation for a Live Audience? If yes, look no further.  This course has been designed considering various parameters. I combine my experience of of teaching Health IT, as well as interacting with various clients. When I started my teaching journey, I struggled to explain the most basic concepts as I was unable to simplify them. It took me some time to realize that in order to be effective, I not only need to simplify the complex concepts, I also needed to generate curiosity to grab and maintain attention of my students.In this course I explain to you a few methodologies I have come acrossKISS – Keep it Super Simple (Design Engineering)The logic of SUCCESs,  conceptualized and promoted by Chip Heath and Dan HeathUsing Show Don’t tell, heavily used in writingHow I use Gamification in my presentations/sessions to generate CuriosityUsing the 5 senses – Taste, Sight, Smell, Sound, and Touch.Leverage Stories – and more importantly leverage your own experiencesThe Who, What, When, Where and Why, mostly used by JournalistsI also take specific examples (listed below) and showcase how I think/create presentations.Baking a CakeProfit & Loss StatementRepresenting Tabular DataRepresenting Graphical DataA Sample Corporate Case StudyA Sample Proposal PresentationA Sample Research Paper Presentation
