This is the McKinsey way to impress clients and reap more business. In 45 years at McKinsey and Company, Gene Zelazny has shown hundreds of McKinsey consultants and thousands of professionals around the world how to plan strategy, visually communicate data, and dramatically improve their presentation skills. "Say It With Presentations" shows you, whether you're an experienced presenter or just starting out, how to put together powerful presentations, from initial concept to post-presentation analysis. Zelazny updates his perennially popular how-to with modern, audience proven techniques for every stage of the presentation - storyboarding, rehearsal, visuals, setting up the equipment, preparing for and answering questions, and more. A popular "Take Humor Seriously" chapter discusses the right and wrong ways to inject valuable humor into a delivery. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
