Presentation Skills and Public Speaking Essentials

The focus of this practical hands-on course is on presentation skills and public speaking essentials, allowing the student to become more comfortable with the public speaking experience, in addition to ensuring that every presentation achieves the objectives set, whether they are to inform, persuade or "make the sale".
