In the professional realm, most speeches and presentations we give are informative in scope. A scientist needs to explain her recent research findings. A financial officer needs to report on quarterly earnings to his company’s board. A technology professional needs to educate a consumer about a new product. Any time you need to convey ideas or demonstrate a process, you’re dealing with informative speaking.

TOP REVIEWS FROM SPEAKING TO INFORM: DISCUSSING COMPLEX IDEAS WITH CLEAR EXPLANATIONS AND DYNAMIC SLIDES
I like this course so much. I like the way Dr. Matt McGarrity encourage and teach everybody to overcome the fear of public speech.
Useful tools to help boring, data driven presentations come to life and keep your audiences attention.
IT WAS A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE OF BEING PART OF THIS COURSE ON SPEAKING TO INFORM. THE WHOLE CONTENT WAS IMPRESSIVE AND HELPFUL. THANKS A MILLION.
Audited course, but learned a lot. Great information, suggestions and examples.
