Powerful Presentations

Powerful presentation skills can be critical in winning backing for your ideas, financial investment, establishing partnerships, and spreading your message.

This workshop covers the secrets of public speaking, from a compelling opening, entrancing narrative, and memorable ending to your talk, to the authoritative use of body language, and creating effective slides.

Each workshop will be fast paced, and highly interactive. To ensure maximum benefit, participants will be asked to come with an idea for a report they may have to write, or presentation they could have to give, depending on the session. We will use those as the basis for our exercises.
