Dynamic Presentations

Course description

Do you want to know the secret of successful presentations? Whether you’re pitching one-on-one to a client, taking a small group of colleagues through the latest quarterlies or giving the keynote speech at a conference, this course will help you both prepare, and perform.
By the end of the course, you’ll know how to start and how to finish, what to put in and what to leave out, when to stick to your plan and when to depart from it. You’ll have an eye for visuals and an ear for how to use your voice. You’ll have a feel for effective body language and the ability to make facts and figures unforgettable. You’ll also learn proven strategies for handling any question your audience might throw at you. You’ll be trying out a range of dynamic presentation techniques as you develop a style that is uniquely yours. People will forget what you said. People will forget what you did. But people will never forget how you made them feel.
