Hone your public speaking skills to make more engaging presentations. Whether addressing the Board of Directors, explaining a new procedure to fellow employees, or persuading your client to make the purchase, the ability to capitalize on one’s strengths to connect to an audience, craft an effective presentation, perfect the delivery and avoid self-defeating thoughts is paramount to leaving a lasting positive impression.

In a judgment-free zone, you will have multiple opportunities to develop and practice a variety of presentations in various venues. Immediate constructive feedback will be used to identify strengths and areas in need of improvement in order to make a higher level of impact. You'll come away better prepared to address future audiences by using a “toolkit” of tips to establish rapport, develop compelling content, minimize pre-stage jitters, and manage last-minute glitches.

Program Includes:

  • Pre assessment to determine individual objectives
  • Individualized feedback after every session pertaining to the individual objectives
  • A final evaluation specifying individual achievements
  • A recording of each of your presentations
  • Opportunity to deliver a presentation in four different venues of varying sizes

Program Content:

  • Developing individual objectives 
  • Identifying and improving the qualities of your delivery mechanics 
  • Engaging the audience
  • Constructing an effective presentation
  • Using visual aids
  • Mastering relaxation and focusing techniques

Dates: 11/7, 11/14, 11/28, 12/5, 12/12, 12/19
