Presentation Skills

The ability to present ideas effectively and persuasively is one of the core sales skills you can learn. In today's world of solution-selling, sales professionals that excel as presenters will have more success communicating complex ideas and product bundles in a way that creates customer alignment and buy-in. As a result, great presenters close larger deals and grow their account footprint much faster and more consistently than others.

This module is designed for new or less-experienced presenters to learn and practice the fundamental techniques you need to maximize impact in your presentations, and to be able to use your presentations as a tool to help you grow and progress your deals.
