Extraordinary Presentations 

An Essential Leadership Skill

There is likely no leadership skill more powerful than the ability to design and deliver extraordinary presentations.  

Beyond the adequate or satisfactory, even beyond the good ones, extraordinary presentations are those special events that impact us in a profound way, tending to stay lodged in our memory often for years.  

The arguments they put forward somehow find a special place in our evaluative processes, moving us to an appreciation for points of view we might otherwise have dismissed.   

They accomplish this feat by pulling us so completely into the stories they weave that we travel beyond liking or enjoying the tales as they unfold, we find ourselves threatened by the dangers, uplifted by the aspirations and wishing for the goals of the heroes to be achieved.  

Build and deliver an extraordinary presentation and the audience will take part in the adventure on a visceral level, deeply and fundamentally sharing the experience, and the new ideas you put forward will appear to them as personal discoveries, as revelations, as a welcome surprise.  

In this presentation, I will endeavor to provide a sample.

Take-Aways From This Session:

 In this interactive session, Bob's goal is that you will leave with these three pearls to ponder:

  • We are in the business of changing opinions about the products and services people value and acquire

  • The road to changing opinions goes through the valley of personal experience

  • No opinion is irreversible, especially if it's held by someone else.

About Our Facilitator:

No business talent or skill is more valuable than effective communication.

My 25 years as a coach, speaker, and instructor in business communication began with years of experience in professional theater as a writer, actor and director where I learned to captivate and motivate the listeners.
Now, in applying those same skills to business audiences, I know the values presented must be expressed and clarified from the listener’s frame of reference.
To be compelling and memorable, the material must be organized to enter the audience’s awareness as a sequential series of logically related conceptual steps, in short in the form known as the story.
Most business presentations fail in at least one of these two ways.
Finally, to hold the listener’s unwavering attention, the presenter’s behavior must be authentic and appropriate.

Resolutionary Thinking

Focusing on solutions. Thinking creatively and tenaciously about outcomes. About what’s in your best interests. Getting matters resolved, so you can get on with what matters to you. That’s resolutionary thinking. And that’s made Shulman, Rogers, Gandal, Pordy & Ecker, P.A., one of the largest, most respected law firms in the Washington Metropolitan Area.

In 1972, Shulman Rogers was founded on a commitment to client service. Today, the firm’s roster of highly skilled attorneys and other dedicated staff members are all guided by that same commitment. A client-first approach. A smart, efficient practice. A relentless focus on problem-solving. And an underlying compassion—for our clients and our community. It all adds up to resolutionary thinking. The kind of thinking you can count on from the people of Shulman Rogers.
