Machine Parts and Tooling Industries Seminar to be Held Tips for Effective Presentations-Learn from Silicon Valley-Style Approaches to Presentations

For companies, delivering effective presentations before business partners and investors for explaining their business models is an indispensable tool to succeed in global business. In Silicon Valley, a site where the world’s most-advanced technologies aggregate, companies need to make presentations on strong points and characteristics of their own products, e.g., quality and quick response, accurately and briefly so as to strongly attract listeners’ attention, which is different from the Japanese approach where companies tend to explain their products along the lines with written materials they have prepared.

This seminar will focus on presentations in English to win global competitions, and participants will learn about Silicon Valley-style approaches to effective presentations, e.g., methods for preparation and material development and skills for delivering speeches, which may help companies in effectively attracting the attention of visitors at overseas exhibitions, expanding sales channels to overseas companies, and other efforts.
