Today's Presenters: A Mixed Bag

Every organization has outstanding employees whose technical or administrative skills are matched by their presentation skills. Much of the material in this book comes from the observations and experiences of many of these top presenters. In my experience, most of the people who rise to the top in organizations do so not only because they have demonstrated expertise in their specialties, but because they have good communication skills, particularly oral skills. (There are exceptions.)

Kevin Werner, president of the SAIC Venture Capital Group, said: "It is very important that people be able to present well, and occasionally we will see a spellbinder who holds our attention and addresses issues relevant to us. Gives them a big advantage over others who may have a good case but can't present it so well."[11]
