The Language of Business

How to communicate technical information to a non-technical audience

Topic 1: How to create compelling presentations

  • Attendees will learn to create compelling presentations by applying two simple, repeatable methods. The methods help the attendees organize the messages and content in their presentations. Instead of giving vague advice about the need to be clear or how to arrange slides, this talk provides a tangible method for exactly what types of message to put in the introduction, main body, and conclusion of a presentation.
  • If your team presents topics in any forum, this talk is for you.

Topic 2: Impacts and Outcomes – how to use language that everyone understands

  • Attendees will learn how to talk about any topic using language that other teams (especially business teams) will understand. The methods taught will help technical professionals talk to non-technical team. The methods are simple, and a number of tools and guides are provided to help the attendees apply the methods to their own communication.
  • If your technical teams communicate regularly with business stakeholders, this talk is for you.
