No matter how good or important a message is, if it’s not delivered in an interesting and effective way, chances are it won’t be heard at all. Strong presentation skills can advance a career.
Poor speaking skills can ground a rising star. Make sure your message is heard with presentation slides that inform and engage your audience. Positioning yourself and your ideas in a consistently positive and professional manner enables you to make a professional impression — the first time and every time. Raw information is logical but being logical does not capture anyone’s attention for too long. Persuasive presentations start with raw information, opinions are added, coloured with imagery, and given personality. The more of the mind you tickle, the more retention and motivation you reap.
In this program, participants will learn how to conquer the podium and deliver presentations that get results. From dynamic introductions to powerful closings, participants will have an opportunity during this training to practice and refine their platform skills.
