A Presentation Skills Intensive

Whether you’re an experienced presenter wanting to fine-tune your skills, a beginning presenter with a bad case of nerves, or fall somewhere in between, Presentation Skills Intensive is for you!

Participants will learn and practice skills and tools for delivering polished, compelling presentations.

Through a series of highly-interactive activities and individual coaching, participants will:

  • Plan, develop, and deliver multiple presentations

  • Receive useful peer and facilitator feedback

  • Learn how to assess and engage an audience

  • Develop techniques to align their verbals, vocals and visuals with their message

  • Design presentations through the principles of framing and storytelling

  • Identify “best practice” strategies for using paper and electronic materials to support their message

  • Expand their performance range and strategies in formal and informal communication contexts.

Lunch will be provided!
