Everyone knows of fun, talkative, charismatic individuals who freak out and transform into boring, lifeless creatures when it is time to make an official presentation or statement to an audience. For whatever reason, the perception is that presentations must be stiff and formal. This interactive program breaks the traditional rules of public speaking and offers specific tips and new ideas for bringing presentations to life. No matter how weak or strong of a presenter you think you are, this session improves your confidence and abilities as a powerful and persuasive communicator.
Participants don’t just hear tips–they are on their feet practicing and leave ready to ace their next presentation. We even record each presentation for self-review! Each participant delivers a presentation, receives peer feedback from the group, and benefits from one-on-one time with the facilitator to hone their skills and make enhancements. Through this experience, presenters overcome performance anxiety, gain confidence, and master techniques to develop and deliver effective presentations. This is an intense and powerful course where improvements are seen right away.
Participants leave this program with the ability to:
- Structure an effective presentation to meet audience needs and personal objectives
- Reduce stress and tension related to delivering presentations
- Create presentation openings that command attention and interest
- Deliver with poise and style
- Wrap up presentations with a hard-hitting conclusion
- Handle questions assertively and successfully
- Identify strengths, areas of improvement, and an action plan for continuous development
This practical program utilizes live taping and one-on-one feedback to perfect presentations.
