It’s the last of the double-digits here on episode ninety-nine of the Presentation Boss Podcast! This week we had a conversation with an expert from New Zealand on presentation skills, audience engagement and facilitation. He reached out to us after listening to the show, promising he had something to offer. And Johnny Quinn, the presentologist has loads to offer.

As it turns out, this conversation made immediate change to how Kate and Thomas present their workshops and masterclasses. We cover a lot of ground in this show, delving deep into not just why audience engagement is important, but what it means, and some actual tools to achieve it. Plus, how this translates to the online medium, and some techniques around the use of PowerPoint. It really tickles all our favourites!
