The results of surveys conducted on desired business competencies frequently state that presentation skills are key to hiring and promotion decisions. Logistics professionals at all levels are expected to communicate to small and large groups of customers, associates, corporate representatives, and community organizations. Some estimates suggest the 80% of information received is filed and never used. Speakers who desire to break through this fog of information to reach a board of directors, manager, or team of associates understand that they must use techniques and words that are powerful. To make presentations more powerful, the simple solution is to focus on removing distractions. Fewer distractions provide a stronger performance, therein giving the speaker confidence and eventually comfort. Distractions can be systematically reduced within preparation, delivery, and assessment techniques. Improving communication and presentation skills is then an ongoing and rewarding task.
