Prosper Jefferson: Public Speaking

Public speaking can be daunting, but doing it effectively can have a very positive impact on your reputation and your business. Being a good communicator may help a business owner to better connect with customers, increase sales, and open his/her business to new opportunities. As part of the 2016 Prosper Jefferson seminar series, JEDCO & the Jefferson Chamber are teaming up to help enhance your public speaking skills.

We invited three expert public speakers – Ronnie Slone of The Slone Group, Chuck Mutz of CenturyLink Communications, and Glenn Milliet of Glenn Michael Salons –  to share their tips and techniques to ensure your presentation success. Topics include:

  • How to develop a foundation for skillful speaking
  • Understanding the basic elements of the communication process to effectively engage one’s audience
  • Identifying and overcoming fears of public speaking
  • Best practices to increase confidence in public speaking abilities
  • Effective PowerPoint presentations
  • Personalized selling
  • Storytelling to connect with your audience
