ChaTech is hosting a one-time professional development course on how to give a technical presentation, in partnership with Vincent Phipps of Communication VIP.

Of this one-time course ChaTech is offering, ChaTech Executive Director Carla Askonas said, “Our member organizations have asked for more professional development opportunities to retain their current employees and be attractive to the talent pool out there. ChaTech’s goal is to sustain Chattanooga’s vibrant tech ecosystem by advocating tech talent stay in the region, offering connections to resources for growth, and cultivating a welcoming and safe environment for IT professionals. We believe this program is a step in that direction.”
To ensure an engaging and beneficial course, ChaTech has crafted a personalized and custom course with Vincent Phipps using his A.M.P.L.I.F.Y. technique. The purpose is to improve technical presentation skills and give attendees the tools to incorporate seven communication dynamics into their next lecture. A few of these dynamics are:
- Structuring messages when speaking to technical and non-technical audiences
- Engaging the audience
- Creating a custom and personalized prep routine before delivering a presentation
