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.
