Recorded Webinar: Designing Dynamic Presentations with Intention, Inspiration & Impact

This webinar was presented on Wednesday, October 2, 2019 from 2-3 p.m. ET

Nutrition professionals work in a variety of positions where they need to deliver presentations to inform, influence, and inspire targeted audiences. For example, a dietitian may need to educate consumers on food choices, present to other healthcare professionals on a condition that requires Medical Nutrition Therapy for a successful outcome, or present an innovative idea to senior leadership within their organization. Dietetic curricula at the undergraduate, graduate, and supervised practice levels rarely contain dedicated nutrition communication courses that teach presentation skills or provide the depth necessary for highly successful outcomes that address a variety of audiences.

To help fill the gap in nutrition professionals' education, Barbara J. Mayfield, MS, RDN, FAND, CD and Sonja Stetzler, MA, RDN, CPC discuss how to design a presentation that confidently and competently addresses audiences and achieves personal and audience-centered outcomes. 

Learning Objectives

After completing this continuing education course, nutrition professionals should be able to:

  1. Identify measurable outcomes the audience will achieve as a result of attending their presentation.
  2. Analyze and target potential audience wants, needs, knowledge, beliefs, and more, and account for these characteristics in presentation design.
  3. Craft a core/premise statement including key messages, supporting evidence and examples, and application activities.
