About Mark Brown
Originally from Kingston, Jamaica, Mark Brown immigrated to the United States at the age of 18 with only $40 in his pocket and a dream for a better life. He spent 15 years working as a computer analyst before choosing to develop his public speaking skills. After recovering from a life-threatening illness in the summer of 1993, he made a commitment to excel as a communicator, earning a 1995 Harlem YMCA Black Achievers in Industry Award in the process.
You’ve got an idea, and want to bring people along to support you or buy your product and service. You feel the need to tell them all about it, so they understand your proposition – and yet, they have no time to hear the details, and want a short pitch. How do you manage the time pressure? What should you tell, and what should you leave out? How do you get them to take the next step?

Anyone can stand up and give a presentation, but how do you stand out from other presenters? How can you create a presentation that is truly unforgettable? If people don’t remember your message 3 months, or even 3 days later, you may have wasted both your time and theirs.
With the right process, you can develop and convey a message that really impacts lives, whether you speak to one person sitting across from you in your office, a few hundred people online, or thousands of people at a corporate event. You can wow the crowd, and not just maintain your professional reputation, but advance it. If you are going to spend time and energy putting together a presentation that could make or break your career, why not follow a world-class process?
One of the hits from EVV CON June 2021 was a rapid-fire series of presentations on technologies for speakers and leaders, led by Lois Margolin. Watch the replay — and if you didn’t attend live, be sure next time you’re on hand to ask questions!
