B-Insightful: How to Present Effectively

Our Head of Science, Peter Sam Raj, was asked by Candian co-working community Workhaus (which, incidentally, is where our Toronto staff are based!) to provide some actionable advice on how to enhance your public speaking and presentation skills, capabilities which are essential to many individuals in the tech industry:

“The obvious advice on presenting is lots of practice, confident delivery, audience awareness, etc. You need all those to be able to present your company/product effectively. But when I think about what sets a presentation apart and makes it live in the audience’s mind, it is when there is a communication of passion. Presenting your company/product is all about communicating that spark in your eye when you think about your idea – the force that gets you out of bed ready and raring to go every morning. When you can step into someone’s shoes and help them see the romance of the idea in the same way you see it – that, I believe, is special. ”
