Presenting Better

Your Challenge:

“I don’t communicate in a persuasive or convincing way.”

We’re told there is one right way to present – 3 bullets on a slide, 1 slide per minute, don’t fidget. We create presentations without thinking about our audience or what we want to achieve. This is a path to a one-sided monologue and death by PowerPoint.

 

In the one-day Presenting Better workshop, learn the basic building blocks of presentations. Build off of your natural presentation strengths. Overcome your weaknesses and gain buy-in from your audience.

At the end of the workshop, participants will:

  • Create and deliver effective, impactful presentations.

  • Give an engaging presentation people understand and remember.

  • Be an effective communicator, make clearer decisions, and present pitches that win business.
     

Professional skills gained:

  • Presentations

  • Influence

  • Informal Leadership

Communicate and persuade with confidence and impact.
