Welcome To KCI's Technical Presentations Demo!

I'm Steven Kanten, president of KCI. I have been teaching technical presentation skills programs to Fortune 100 and 500 companies for over 25 years.

We agree with the saying, "good technical skills will get you in - good communication skills will get you ahead."  The purpose of this training is to help you a become a better, more confident technical presenter.

To do this, the program teaches you how to create and deliver technical presentations using an efficient, repeatable process - the KCI POD Process. The POD Process you learn here is applicable to every kind of presentation.

The program begins with information on getting started and then discusses KCI's POD process.
To learn this process, you will work through a series of short lessons and activities that provide opportunities to practice the process from the planning stages through the final delivery stages of a technical presentation.

When you have completed this program, you will be able to:

  • Understand the factors that contribute to effective technical presentations.
  • Plan your technical presentation based on your audience and your purpose.
  • Brainstorm ideas for your technical presentation.
  • Select the ideas that support the purpose of your technical presentation.
  • Organize your presentation into a persuasive or informative format.
  • Deliver a clear and concise technical presentation.
  • Use visual aids to help support and deliver your message.
  • Know the value of stress management, verbal/nonverbal communication, varied delivery styles, and Q&A strategies.

You must meet two requirements to receive a completion certificate for this program.

  1. Create a technical presentation using the POD Process
  2. Complete the Program Evaluation at the end of the program

You'll receive a Technical Presentations Certificate of Completion once you have fulfilled both requirements.
