LEWISBURG, Pa. — The Small Business Development Center (SBDC) at Bucknell University will offer the workshop, "Six mistakes that sabotage your presentation," Tuesday, April 13, from 2 to 4 p.m. in Hunt Formal in Hunt Hall at Bucknell.
Bonnie Budzowski, of Incredible Messages, will discuss how to deliver presentation that engage and persuade others by avoiding the six mistakes presenters make including: striving to impress rather than serve, confusing the audience with clutter, winging the story, and missing opportunities in the question-and-answer session.
With more than 20 years in the communications field, Budzowski has worked with corporations, executives, universities and associations. The recipient of an M.A. in communications, she is the author of Secrets to Get Busy People to Respond to Your Messages and Clickety Clack: 86 Ways to Keep Your Speech on Track. She is past president of the Pittsburgh chapter of the National Speakers Association.
