Kathy's Connection

This week I was privileged to have three major presentations/facilitations.

1. Intergenerational Communications in the Workplace.
2. Networking Fundamentals
3. Facilitated a National Board Meeting

While I totally enjoy one-on-one executive coaching, it is when I have a room full of people that I realize the real benefit of presenting or facilitating a meeting. It is the ability to share knowledge/wisdom with many more people in a shorter period of time.

Yet, I remember the time when I made my first presentation--I was scared to death. I now know the ability to stand up in front of people is a learned a skill---not something you were born being able to do with no fear. The only way to overcome the fear is to keep getting up there.


As many of you know, I am not a proponent of Power Point.
Nothing worse than the lights being low and someone reading line for line the same thing he is saying.

Presenters that are tuned in with their audience know if they have the interest of their audience. Flexibility is of utmost importance. A presenter, because she is the authority on the subject, must have many tools in her tool chest. Flipcarts allow you that flexibility
