65. How To Make “Dry Information” Engaging
Join us for episode sixty-five of The Presentation Boss Podcast! We work a whole lot with tech-based teams. Accounting, IT, engineering, academia, data analysts.. the type of deep thinkers who have a massive amount of knowledge and understanding in their topics. But can struggle to get that important information out of their mind. Especially when they are labelled as boring or involved with dry, boring information.

Let us walk you through five of the key aspects and philosophies we use with our clients to ensure they communicate their topic of brilliance (no matter the label) in an engaging and effective way.
