Course detail: Leadership Live One-Day Workshop: Say It Simply & Smartly
Don't let it be you! Don't be that person who puts an audience to sleep with a poorly organized business presentation, a stammering, "uh, um, you know," speaking style, and slides that feature a zillion words but no clear ideas.
This program, facilitated by Dr. Lee Stuart, long-time speaker and executive speaking coach, helps you avoid several all-too-common presentation problems. We explore the importance of non-verbal communication and learn to design our intended outcomes into our presentations. We learn to conduct audience analysis and how to craft compelling presentation openings and closings. Every participant in the program will deliver a live presentation and receive immediate feedback.
