“You can have the greatest technical skills in the world, but without solid Presentation and communication skills, who will know and who can understand? Presentation and Communication skills are an ever-evolving skill set. You never have enough practice.”
Presentation and Communication is another word for dealing with people. Communication, whether viewed as a process or a skill, must be seen in the context of the situation and the people involved. “Its roots go back to ancient Greece, when rhetoric – the study of discovering and using “the available means of persuasion” – was an important part of the citizenry’s education”.
“Presentation and Communication is the processing of sending and receiving messages –sometimes through spoken or written words and sometimes through such non-verbal means as facial expressions, gestures and voice qualities.”
