Presenting with Confidence
What are the main challenges in giving a good presentation?
Every working professional must be prepared to be called upon to give a presentation. It could be a simple briefing or a detailed analysis.

Many people are nervous about speaking in front of an audience. This is known as stage fright. The good thing is this can be managed with careful and effective preparations.

There are many challenges in giving a good presentation. You need to ensure that you look professional and confident, and you must sound clear and convincing. On top of that, you must be able to capture and hold the audience's attention with your presentation contents.

What do you gain from this two-day workshop?
This workshop takes you through the most important elements of a presentation. These include ways to ensure sharp audience focus, clear and logical structural flow, strong narrative linkages and persuasive presentation visuals.

You will learn techniques to manage your vocal and physical projections, in order to capture the attention and gain the respect of your audience. This will also help to ensure success in persuading and convincing them.

You will be recorded giving two presentations. The workshop leader will point out parts that you have done well and parts that need improvement. You will take away your personal copy of the DVD recordings.

This course helped me to correct my flaws and confront my fears during a presentation. The video-taping of our presentations and pointers by the trainer showed me how to improve.
