The stated objective jumps right at you right from the title!

Learn to speak so people don’t check their e-mail while you are giving your presentation. Learn to speak so that people not just politely listen, but really listen. Learn the methods and techniques are required to ensure you connect with your audience and land your messages with impact.

Engaging presenters get to promote their ideas and advance their interests and their career. Effective communication is therefore an indispensable skillset to make a difference in the world.

This is public-speaking workshop specifically aimed at presenting in a board-like setting, a semi-formal meeting with an audience of 4 -10 people.

Be they in a Steering Committee, an Executive Committee or at a Board meeting, certain topics require that a technical subject-matter expert be invited to shed light on specific concerns. Presenters who don’t have much experience with such a setting, may get bogged down in details, run over time and miss their opportunity to get across a critically important message. This Workshop will give participants a chance learn how to best prepare for this kind of exercise, to be compelling and persuasive. This is also a helpful overview for any public speaking performance.

With this course you will embark on an exciting journey to become the most effective presenter you can be.
