Confident Presentation Skills Workshop



The Challenges
 

You have been called on to prepare and deliver a speech or group presentation. 

Your presentation must inform and influence the members of the audience or group. 

To achieve your objectives, your presentation must be impressive and memorable. You will have to deliver it with skill, style and confidence.


Overview


Business presentations are invaluable opportunities to demonstrate our knowledge and expertise.  Achieving the desired results often depends on how well we speak and present our case to senior management, to a Board or in front of key external stakeholders.

Presenting to an audience requires more than high level knowledge and insights on the subject matter; it demands a strong command of verbal and non-verbal communication skills and a confident presence.

In the Confident Presentation Skills One-Day program, participants learn how to present calmly, clearly and confidently.  Within a positive and encouraging learning environment, participants gain the practical skills to be influential presenters in real-world situations.
