Presenting With Style and Ease

Presenting_Testimonials

Clear and dynamic presentations engage audiences and provide memorable material.  They impart new and compelling information.  They drive people to action and encourage people to change.

Unfortunately, countless presentations fall short of these results.

Too often, many of us have been lulled to sleep by a presenter reading PowerPoint bullets that we’ll never remember.  During these presentations we pay more attention to the clock than the presenter.

So how do we learn to deliver informative, engaging presentations?

This workshop helps participants overcome their personal presentation challenges and build on their current strengths.  They will finish the training equipped with the skills and confidence to deliver important information in an organized and thought-provoking way.

Recorded twice on an iPad, they can instantly view their presentation and receive feedback from the instructor.

Workshop length: One or Two Days
