You work extremely hard for months, sometimes years on your product and now you have reached the point you are ready to launch it to the market. How do you communicate the value your product brings in the most effective and efficient way so people start to buy? You can have the best idea or product in the world but if you can’t articulate the value in an easy to understand way your efforts will go to waste.

In this week’s podcast Simon and myself will talk about how to create a great message and how to translate that message into a great presentation. How do you avoid the “Death by PowerPoint” syndrome which we have all experienced?

Together we explore what communication tools work best for which audience. We discuss what other tools are available in addition to powerpoint like press and white boarding? What works best with a technical buyer vs a business buyer? What tool do you use when you want to connect with the C-Suite? Why is it important to have a clear call to action? Simon explains it all.

Like in every podcast we wrap up with three key suggestions you can start using tomorrow!
