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.

She interacted with senior level executives with ease, was creative in her approaches, and demonstrated a tremendous amount of patience, which was critical to her success. Her sourcing techniques went well beyond just posting an opening or surfing the web, reaching out and networking with candidates to find us the best people for the job. "

"To be blunt, our OI resource has done a great job helping us.  I really have no complaints, but I realize we are small and the priority should be less for someone like us, but she has never made us feel that way.  Very responsive and is here when we need her."
