"The instructors were well prepared and versed in their art of presenting. They took as much time as they could to help you become a better presenter.”
Kerry Brough, Calibration Product Manager - Pepperell, Massachusetts
"I thought the class was very good. Overall what I found most useful was putting a 'structure' around a presentation, which should be intuitive, but the 'ASIA' approach is good and easy to remember and something I'll definitely use in the future."
Rich Izzi, Sr. Product Marketing Manager, Progress Software. Bedford, Massachusetts
"I thought the training course went really well, was very useful, I certainly got a lot out of it. It should prove very useful moving forward.
The most useful part was probably the emphasis on practice, recorded and reviewed with the class. There were only six attendees, an ideal number in terms of having time to record and review 10 presentations each. The instructor was very good and very supportive."
Sr. Training Program Manager
"I found this week's workshop extremely valuable and I think Peggy Rainwater did a fantastic job. Based on the description, my expectation was that this workshop would not focus too heavily on basics, but improving existing skills while keeping the basics in mind. I was very pleased that this was the case and felt that quality time was spent in further developing my skills. Peggy also had a great take away, to keep working on improving these skills and not let it slide.
I have already recommended the course to three other colleagues."
Kristina Brand, Product Marketing Manager
"The class was very good and the instructor, Peggy Rainwater was excellent. The interactive exercises were very well planned and executed perfectly. The only regret is that I would have liked one more day to develop the skills that were learned in class a little more."
David M. Barone, R.Ph.
CVS Store Support Center
"I liked the realizing how I looked plus my actions. The instructors are very nice and knowledgeable comfortable to work with. I would recommend the marketing dept."

"I liked doing the presentations impromptu because it allowed me to practice the model for potential impromptu opportunities in the future. The instructors were very professional while maintaining a fun environment."
Internal Sales Consultant
"The course content was all new to me but valuable and useable in the field. The instructors were great people, well versed in their topics, and they knew exactly what they wanted to do and accomplished it."
"The video-taping and individualized critiques helped explain the reasoning for each technique."
"It was a very informative class that really helped me along. The trainers were great and very hands-on."
Internal Sales Consultants
"This was a good, stressful experience for me, and the Body section was the easiest for me to grasp and probably the most applicable."
Sales Engineer Manager
Just a few short years ago, the "look and feel" of presentations was much different than today. As recently as the 1990s, presenters often relied solely on overheads to convey visual representations of facts, figures and presentation content. To some extent, presentations were easier to deliver but one would be hard pressed to say that they were as dynamic as they are today.
Thanks to advancements in technology, presentations in the information age are multimedia rich and dynamic. Today, more often than not, presenters have the ability to deliver their presentations using laptop computers connected to LCD projectors. Through the use of multimedia tools such as streaming video, WAV or MP3 audio and dynamic animated graphics, presentations are now visually engaging and able to truly grab an audience. Yet, with a rise in multimedia usage, there is an equal rise in complexity. In order for a presenter to use these multimedia tools effectively during a presentation, one needs to not only understand how to use them but when and why to use them.
Our Multimedia Presentations Skills workshop empowers participants with the ability to use multimedia tools and how to use them in a way that enhances, rather than detracts from a presentation.
Multimedia Presentations Skills is a one-day interactive workshop focused on providing participants with the ability to utilize multimedia tools in their presentations. This training program covers not only the use of multimedia presentations tools but also teaches methods of professional business communications such as presentation structure, delivery, strategy and the ability to use alternative visual aids effectively. Participants practice by preparing and delivering a real-life multimedia presentation which, ideally, they will be delivering internally or to customers following the workshop.
Each presentation is followed by a coaching and feedback sessions, designed to provide individual suggestions and advice. This format allows participants to evaluate personal effectiveness and modify behavior to more effectively use multimedia presentations skills. Time is spent as a group and individually on individual exercises, question and answer sessions and group activities. Participants should plan on bringing their own laptop in order to take full advantage of this multimedia-enabled workshop.
Multimedia Presentation Skills program participants will learn to:
