Presentation Skills and Public Speaking Essentials

The focus of this practical hands-on course is on presentation skills and public speaking essentials, allowing participants to become more comfortable with the public speaking experience. In addition, participants will learn how to be able to ensure that every presentation achieves the objectives set, whether they are to inform, persuade, or "make the sale.”

This program is ideal for both meetings with staff, as well as for internal and external presentations, allowing participants time to concentrate on public speaking, overcome fears, and better cope with nerves. In addition, the curriculum focuses on overall presentation skills training including design, preparation, delivery methods, and techniques.

"The JSE guide alone was worth the cost of the workshop. What a comprehensive program!"

“Everyone we deal with is very knowledgeable, responsible, and flexible. We very much enjoy working with our partners at OperationsInc! I don't know what we would do without our OI consultants! OI has long been a valued partner for us as the business has grown over the past 9 years. Without the help of the subject matter experts at OI, we would not have been able to support our management team in the manner expected.”

"Our OI Resource was highly efficient. Her response times were remarkable. In terms of her knowledge of the recruiting field – she was always on top of everything I asked her. She had a wonderful personality and was very easy to talk to / coordinate with. She follows up with everything very quickly, which is hard to find these days. I honestly couldn’t have asked for a better experience with your organization."

"Our OI Resource has been great to work with.  Through my interactions with her, she seems very knowledgeable in her area and able to answer any of my questions.  If we do come across something she doesn’t know off hand, she does a great job of doing the research or asking others at OI, and then getting back to me quickly with a thorough response.  She’s also always available if we need to schedule a call or meeting."
