Presenting with Confidence

Presenting with Confidence

Create and deliver great presentations

Overview

Your ability to present confidently and persuasively has a direct impact on your career success. Whether you need to write and present a business case to senior executives, brief some colleagues on a late-breaking development, or speak as an authority before an important customer or external audience, this workshop gives you a structured approach to succeed as a business presenter and enhance your company’s effectiveness as well.

You will walk away with a toolkit of best practices and hands-on exercises on preparing your content (analytical skills, logical thinking, and cross-discipline work) as well as presenting effectively to get your point across (style, tone, body language, visuals).
