Members Only Workshop Event

01:00 PM - 05:00 PM Eastern Standard Time

This free workshop for WTS NC Triangle Chapter members will cover The Assertion-Evidence Approach to giving presentations and projecting confidence. During this workshop, participants will learn how to improve their presentation skills by using key messages supported by visual evidence. Join us for the half-day workshop to gain confidence presenting to your clients.


From an audience’s perspective, many presentations of engineering material suffer because the talks are unfocused. This lack of focus leads to much noise, which reduces the understanding by the audience. Much of the problem arises from speakers following PowerPoint’s defaults and building their talks on phrase headlines supported by bulleted lists. At this workshop, WTS members will learn about the assertion-evidence approach (http://www.assertion-evidence.com) to designing engineering presentations. In this approach, the speaker builds the talk on key messages supported by visual evidence. Assertion-evidence presentations have been found to be more focused and lead to preater understanding by audiences. In addition, attendees of this workshop (even those initially nervous about making presentations) report that using the assertion-evidence approach has given them more confidence. 


Join us for the FREE workshop to help improve your presentation skills, plus stay for the networking dinner and get to know your fellow WTS members.
