Confab Intensive 2017

Show your work: How to present and teach your content strategy with confidence

Our work is full of presentations. Every day we’re showing plans and schedules to our team, teaching writers how to use the new CMS or style guide, and sharing reports with stakeholders. But most of us have never had any formal training in how to present, and it can be daunting.

In this workshop, we’ll discuss some of the basics of giving presentations—how to state your case, not hyperventilate, and reduce the number of times you say "um"—but we’ll also go way beyond that. What’s the larger goal for each presentation? What kinds of examples will this audience find compelling? How much can they handle learning at once?

In this session, you’ll learn to:

  • Adjust the style and format of your presentation based on what you want your participants to take away.
  • Make sure your audience is picking up what you’re putting down.
  • Adapt a presentation based on whether it’s in-person or over the phone.
  • Relax, and—dare I even say—have fun while speaking.

Who should attend: The ideal participant is someone who is either A) anxious or scared when it comes time to present, or B) frustrated that their presentations and trainings don't seem to have sticking power.
