everything word for word, you will seem disengaged from the audience. Even
though most presenters know this, the situation still seems unavoidable.
You can’t be expected to memorize an hour-long speech that’s packed with

Close the Deal by Managing Objections, Not Hard Sales

Close the Deal by Managing Objections, Not Hard Sales | Organizational Development & Leadership | Scoop.it
