Presenting with Impact
What’s this course about?
This highly interactive persuasive presentation skills workshop gets people on their feet practicing and receiving feedback throughout the day. Within a supportive environment, presenters learn about their individual presentation style; becoming aware of the things they are doing well and learning how to eliminate any tendencies that are distracting.
Each person will make multiple mini-presentations as they practice new techniques and learn first-hand how to effectively connect with the audience. We’ll discuss ways to tailor presentation content and delivery for the most engaging and impactful performance.
The workshop includes:
- Finding an intrinsic style
- Mastering physical presence
- Understanding the power of voice
- Using eye contact to connect
- Organizing to ensure a logical flow
- Telling a story
- Rehearsing to build confidence
