Our course provides you with the skills required to present technical information in a clear and informative manner to a non-technical audience. Under the instruction of your Senior IG Trainer, you will master the ability to present technical content to people who are not technically inclined. This will be achieved without diluting content or sacrificing critical details.
Creating and Presenting Relevant Content: Knowing Your Audience
It is essential to create content that is relevant to your target audience. You must tailor your content to address/solve a critical business issue(s) that is relevant to your target audience. In this exercise, using IGs “Content Builder,” you will develop content that addresses previous and current business issue(s), providing a clear solution(s) that directly and positively impacts your target audience.
Presenting to a Non-Technical Audience
It’s easy for a non-technical audience to be overwhelmed by a technical presentation. In this exercise, using IG “Technical Storyboard,” you will create and deliver technical content to a non-technical audience.
Presenting the Data
Data is often the most important aspect of a technical presentation. Your data is likely the basis of your reasoning, calculations, and recommendations. It is essential that a non-technical audience clearly understand the data source(s) and the integrity of that data. Utilizing IGs “Data Tool,” you will clearly explain your analysis of your data and how that data has led to your conclusion(s) and recommendation(s).
Defending Your Data
