Being able to give effective presentations is an important business skill. It is vital to be able to clearly and convincingly communicate your ideas to others. In fact, it has always mattered.
They say 'great minds think alike'. In the world of inventions it is quite common for more than one person to be working on a similar solution to a problem at the same time, often without knowledge of each other.
Have you ever found yourself listening to a manager or colleague presenting their case and said to yourself 'I had that idea as well'?
History is littered with inventors who may well have been the first to come up with the idea, but who are not necessarily credited with the invention. A good example of this is the miners safety lamp - often known as the Davy lamp. There was a dispute between Davy and George Stephenson (the other inventor) which Davy effectively won. The contest was considered uneven as Stephenson lacked the notoriety and speaking abilities of Davy.
