About the Seminars: Focusing on the Solution

Steve Wirtel, P.E. brings a better approach. As a technical professional himself, Steve has been successfully putting these techniques into practice for nearly 20 years. He learned the techniques from Dag Knudsen in the early 1990s and has been using them ever since.

Technical professionals work best when they follow a structured, repeatable process. A technical professional would never begin design without the proper planning. Nor would a technical professional begin constructing a facility without plans and specifications. Yet when it comes to presentations, most technical professionals literally wing it. Or, they resort to the two things they know best: their technical expertise and their company. This training focuses on designing winning presentations.

Winning presentations make it easy for the client to select you over your competition because it:

Is concise
...because the process

  • stays within allotted time frame
  • determines the the appropriate level of detail
  • focuses your message for maximum impact

Has strong and logical continuity
...because the process

  • overcomes communication barriers
  • develops a logical, lucid and persuasive message
  • reveals the logical order of the message

Supports its arguments with forceful graphics
...because the process

  • designs visuals that bring home the desired point
  • prevents information overload
  • constructs visuals so facts are remembered

  • supports inexperienced staff to deliver with confidence and authority

Drives to a productive conclusion - a contract

  • wins audience trust and confidence
  • makes them remember you
  • wins selection committee approval

Facilitates presentation by groups and experts
