This afternoon masterclass will show you how to present with optimum impact. Can you remember when someone gave a dreadful presentation? They waffled on, forgot key points and didn’t use technology properly. What was wrong? Lack of sleep, weather, mystery virus? The problem was they practiced a bit, winged it and hoped for the best. The hard fact is that all of us only get so far on natural ability. To deliver effective presentations is a process that we can learn, practice and apply.
This course will look at: -
- How to open and close
- Use of humour and technology
- Body language
- Writing scripts
- Memory techniques
- Overcoming nerves
- Using props and notes
- How to bring alive dry material
You will go away with a tool kit that will enable you to develop and grow your ability when presenting.
