Course description

Presenting to Executives

Presenting to senior executives can be challenging; this audience is extremely busy and must make high-stakes decisions, often with little time to weigh options. To be successful, presenters need to quickly and clearly present information that is important to them, ask for questions, and then be done. From years of presenting to top executives in many fields, the formula that we have found that works best is:

  • Summarize up front.
  • Set expectations.
  • Create summary PowerPoint slides.
  • Answer specific requests directly and quickly.
  • Practice with colleagues who will serve as honest coaches.

This intensive workshop, delivered in two half-day sessions, gives participants the opportunity to develop compelling messages to meet audience needs, enhance individual executive presence, and practice high-impact delivery.
