Presentation Skills Boot Camp Takeaways

Posted By thinkLA, Wednesday, May 27, 2015

Over the course of four evenings in May, we held our bi-annual Presentation Skills Boot Camp at Team One in Playa Vista. Participants got a chance to practice and fine tune their pitching and public speaking skills in front of their industry peers. Here were some of the key takeaways:

  • Overview of speaking styles
  • The importance of presentation preparation and rehearsal
  • The importance of body language and eye contact
  • The art of storytelling
  • The difference between solo & ensemble presentations
  • How to use PowerPoint effectively and not as a distraction

Thank you to our instructor, Michael Weiss, and to Team One for hosting us.
