Organizations of all kinds, public and private, routinely kick presentation training for their employees to the back burner: it's something that's nice to have, but it doesn't necessarily contribute directly to the bottom line. A new study in the UK puts the lie to that misconception.
According to a survey of over 250 senior business decision makers by Casio Projectors, nearly half (49%) are unlikely to buy from a company that
makes a poor new-business pitch presentation. In addition, some 60% of employees were so bored during a presentation that they admitted to texting or emailing people during
meetings. Courtesy Fresh Business Thinking.
