This course gives some good tips on presentation preparation for those who do not normally present. I felt that the audience was geared more towards senior management than those working in the weeds. I would have liked to learn more about "How" on some of the tips. Know your audience can be one of the most infuriating steps to perform because of lack of access. Overall, a good intro course but get more perspectives before doing formal presentations.

The course is very good. There is a lot of take away points that we can use in our day to day dealings. The odd part is the fact that the speaker was saying to avoid “Ahm” in presenting but he used a lot of “Ah”.

The content was good, but considering this was a course on effective presentation skills, I found it to be lengthy and dull. It could have been shorter and the speaker could have been more animated.

I really enjoyed Mac Martirossian's course on Leadership Through Effective Presentation Skills. Mac is quite knowledgable about effective communication and this is very much an added value course.

Appreciated the tip on PREZI (new to me) though the rest of the information seemed a lttle basic. Would have appreciated more specific examples with a more positive and upbeat tone.
