The Orderly Conversation: Business Presentations Redefined
The Orderly Conversation® is a groundbreaking presentation skills training resource for business communicators. The practical recommendations found in its pages focus on the type of everyday, getting-business-done presentations that take place in corporate conference rooms across the globe. In other words, it focuses on the types of presentations business people actually deliver.
As business people know, these presentations are not formal speeches. They are structured conversations that help you move business forward. The problem is that traditional resources available to business presenters -- books, blogs, academic courses and the corporate training they have inspired -- focus on speechmaking. The Orderly Conversation draws a clear distinction between the two.
In doing so, it simplifies the process, eases your discomfort, and gives you a fresh way to think about your presentations.
Readers of this book follow the progress of eight fictional, but very typical, business people as they go through a presentation skills training workshop. You will see how they shift their approach away from speechmaking and toward initiating and managing an Orderly Conversation.
You will hear from both authors individually. Ludwig lays out the big picture for each major concept. Owen-Boger coaches the eight workshop participants as they apply those concepts to their own business presentations. As you observe, you'll see how a wide variety of individuals -- some with skills and concerns much like your own -- succeed.
