In a competitive work setting, effective communication and presentation skills can make a critical difference for success. Hard work and good ideas, though essential to success, expressing ideas and bringing people together to work on those ideas, is just as important. In any project, presentations are formal methods that bring people together to plan, monitor and review the work in progress. Making effective presentations is a skill which can be developed through a combination of guidance and practice.
