PRESENTATION SKILLS

Increase your delivery, confidence, organization, flow, and competence.

The purpose of this two-day course is to empower participants to prepare and deliver better presentations in terms of capturing, keeping, and motivating the audience.

Allison is very effective at modeling the class concepts as she presents them. She is engaging and encourages interaction throughout the class, including fun and friendly competitions between groups. She employs a wide variety of methods, including having participants prepare and deliver presentations and receive/provide constructive feedback. Course materials are relevant and easy to incorporate when back on the job. I highly recommend this course for trainers and anyone who prepares and delivers presentations.”
