Presentation Skills: Selling the Big Idea
Presentation skills are extremely important when introducing big ideas in business, the community, and elsewhere. As a leader and/or manager, you are constantly selling your employees, investors, and colleagues. As a business owner, the ability to sell your ideas to prospective customers can make or break your business. Presenting your big idea is a great way to show your passion, belief, and conviction to the big idea so that it comes alive.
When selling your big idea, use spoken communication to introduce “the big picture.” Then put the details in writing. This will give your listeners something to g0 back to for specifics.
