Grand Potential Podcast


The ability to communicate in a clear and engaging way is a must-have skill for any business professional, especially in today’s fast-paced environment. Whether you’re presenting a sales pitch, complex analysis, a strategic marketing program or a fundraising plan, it’s not enough to simply present information on a slide and hope that the audience will “get it.”

In order to communicate, collaborate, and connect with your team, your colleagues, your clients or your audience, the ability to narrow a presentation down to the essentials, communicate your vision in a focused and meaningful way, and present it in a way that is most relevant to your audience is absolutely critical to your professional success.

Whether you’re speaking to a group or one important individual, via in-person or virtual, this session will share 5 critically important tips on how to communicate with diverse stakeholders in a focused, compelling, engaging way, so that you can sell your ideas, your products and yourselves more successfully than ever before.

In this session, Suzannah will share: 

  • One simple technique to reduce the stress and anxiety of public speaking
  • Ideas on how to structure and focus your presentation for maximum impact
  • Simple tweaks to your language that will immediately improve your presentations
  • How to frame your message so that people feel more connected to you
