Presentations: a definition
Presentations are an essential part of communicating both inside and outside a company.
Presentations can be supported by visual aids such as slide presentations, but can as well be focused solely on the speaker. Many factors influence the success of a presentation, such as the engagement with the audience, the level of interactivity of the presentation, the abilities of the speaker.
The core skills to master are both public speaking and storytelling. These two abilities need to go hand in hand in order to create a compelling, interesting presentation.
Remote presentations or virtual presentations have recently taken center stage: communicating effectively through video calls or webinars is a necessary work skill.
