New York, NY – February 5, 2014. Presentation Excellence, a leading provider of presentation training and strategic consulting services for executives, announced that a full-day Presentation Mastery Workshop will take place on April 2, 2014 in New York City.


The Presentation Mastery Workshops are designed for senior executives with sales, marketing, investor, management other leadership responsibilities. It focuses on five areas affecting presentation effectiveness:

  • SubstanceWhat's Important Now versus what's distractive clutter
  • Structure – Organizing content to flow to its logical conclusion: motivate action.
  • Style – Keeping language simple yet powerful, using attractive supportive visuals, be aligned with the speaker's style and resonate audience's needs.
  • Speaker skills –The presenter's goal is project a "leader presence" by being authentic to generate trust, communicating dynamically and connecting with the audience. To "sell your ideas", speakers need to exude competence and confidence, and transfer enthusiasm,
  • Setting – Consider the impact of time of day, place, relationship with audience and communication channel (face-to-face vs. virtual presentations) have on the presentation.


"Increasingly, executives are being challenged by the need to focus on both content and style in order to present a compelling presentation that achieves its goal, and do so with confidence", said Jerry Cahn, Ph.D., J.D., who leads the workshop. "The stakes are getting higher and with the competition also getting training to improve, you need to be the most powerful presenter that you can be. Participants get enormous value from our program because they begin thinking about the issues two weeks before the actual one-day workshop and have two more weeks after it to apply what they learned."

At the workshop, the morning focuses on teaching the fundamentals of presentation effectiveness and address typical challenges faced by presenters. In the afternoon, attendees practice presenting and use what they learned in the morning to critique the presentation and delivery, and get feedback from the group and instructor. After the workshop, attendees have two weeks in which to edit their presentations and submit them to Dr. Cahn for more feedback. Additional coaching for future presentations also is available.
