We are pleased to be able to return to the Geneva Press Club for our next GCN lunch meeting on 15 October.

This meeting will focus on presentation techniques. Making presentations or preparing others to do so is a key role for many communicators. John Zimmer, a lawyer by trade and expert public speaker at heart, will look at emotion from the perspective of both the speaker and the audience, examine why it is so important, and discuss ways in which to add genuine emotion to your presentations.One of the most famous catchphrases of motivational guru Tony Robbins is “Live with passion!” In fact, that’s also how we should speak: with passion; with emotion. Emotion is usually one of the touchstones of a great speech. It separates great speakers from mediocre ones. And it is one of the best ways of ensuring that your audience remembers your message.
