Whether one-on-one or in front of millions on TV, presentations are the primary means of persuasion in business. The problem is that most people receive no training in how to compose the most crucial images they project to an audience and the tools available do not take advantage of motion, touch, processing power, mobility and high resolutions.
Airshow teaches principles of persuasion using techniques of cinematography and visual storytelling.
What You Will Learn
You’ll learn how to:
- Persuade with logic, empathy and credibility.
- Present rich data as compelling and emotionally engaging
- Get hands-on experience with modern tools of persuasion including tablets and interactive, touch-based interfaces.
You have the data. You have the audience. All you need is a story and a screenplay. How do you build them?
There are techniques which are proven to work. They’ve been used by writers, performers and playwrights for centuries. Professional presentation coaches will teach you far less and at greater expense.
- Airshow is better and less expensive, especially in terms of time.
- Airshow is an intimate experience. Audience size is limited.
- All the tools and techniques needed in one day of intense, inspirational and engaging training.
Now is the time to learn presentation skills for the post-PC era.
