Professional Presentations Skills

Several years ago, we were in competition with two other sales training companies for a large and lucrative European training contract with Hewlett Packard (HP) The three competitors were allowed one hour each for a presentation. A “bake off” competition.

The day after the presentation, HP called to award the contract, giving their reason for the favorable choice; “You spent 55 minutes talking about HP and 5 minutes talking about yourselves. Your two competitors spent all of their hour talking about themselves!”
