Presentation skills are extremely important in IT, the same for managers as for engineers. But we all know life is not that simple. Challenges arise when professionals talk to non-tech people. Thus, we have invited Neil Thompson, founder of Teach the Geek to share with us the most common challenges of developers and engineers if it’s about public speech and what techniques they can use to overcome them.

In this interview, we talk about techniques, persuasiveness, the critical points of presentations, the healthy balance between being thorough and not overwhelming if it comes to a non-tech audience, and a lot of other useful aspects.
