[MUSIC] 0:00 Hi there, I'm Julie, a human resources generalist at Treehouse. 0:04 In my role, I get to be involved in a lot of different areas of the company, 0:08 everything from recruiting, to processing payroll, to performance management. 0:12 But one of my favorite aspects of my job is providing tools for 0:18 employees to develop themselves. 0:21 In this course, I'm going to give you tools and 0:23 resources to effectively deliver high quality presentations. 0:26 Before we get too far, 0:30 let's first cover why it is important to develop your skills as a presenter. 0:32 When you communicate effectively, you are creating an opportunity to share 0:38 information in a way that can be understood by everyone in the room. 0:42 It feels great to know you just delivered a strong presentation. 0:46 More importantly, when you really impress and engage your audience, 0:49 you are more likely to have your voice heard, so you can help guide decisions, 0:53 influence change, and make an impact on the business. 0:58 Have you ever been to a dry, drawn out presentation? 1:02 The slides are wordy and the presenter never seems to connect with the audience. 1:06 You can tell that the presenter has done a lot of research and preparation but 1:10 the audience is distracted by an ugly slide deck and 1:15 poor delivery, and they don't hear what the presenter is saying at all. 1:18 That research and preparation may have been for nothing. 1:23 In these lessons I'll make sure you don't become that presenter, 1:27 by covering the things you should be doing in order to prepare 1:31 before you ever even create your side deck. 1:34
