On Wednesday, November 5, 2014, the College of Management proudly hosted a First Wednesday Series presentation on Essentials of preparing, designing and delivering an effective presentation sponsored by the Office of Career Services.
Dr. David Egleston, COM Professor and Dr. Tom Marx, Professor and Director of Center for Leadership and SSCF Program, presented a recipe for a successful and persuasive presentation.
Throughout the course of the presentation, the audience was encouraged to consider the structure, design, physical appearance, language skills and communication techniques necessary to achieve success both at work and in the classroom. At the end of the workshop, in the spirit of theory and practice, small groups put together short presentations to be evaluated by the audience.
“If you are not confident about what you are speaking about – why should anyone believe you?”
(Dr. David Egleston)
