PRESENTATION SKILLS :
Standing up and reciting information while others passively listen and perhaps take notes is the common traditional presentation style that does not really work to teach, inspire, or motivate an audience. Times have changed. If the only purpose of your presentation is to transfer information, you are better off distributing it in a handout or by email and canceling the event.
An effective presentation aims to change the audience and get them to think or act differently by truly engaging them with a clear focused message, logical arguments and compelling visuals combined with a passionate delivery that evokes emotions.
This two day program will provide a guiding framework to teach others how to design, build and deliver compelling high impact presentations by following simple innovative design concepts from the initial design stage and creating the structure of the presentation to researching and building impeccable slides and visuals as well as ensuring a confident, passionate and professional live delivery.
