Presentations can be challenging – most of the time you will be the only person talking. In a conversation or a meeting you can sometimes take time to think of a question or what you would like to say. In a presentation, on the other hand, every pause can feel like an eternity! It therefore pays to be very well prepared.
This workshop will help you with the language of presentations – how to introduce yourself and the topic, how to describe visuals you may include in your presentation and much more. In addition you will master the various techniques that make up effective presentations, including brainstorming and organizing ideas, tailoring content to an audience, designing powerful visual aids, planning for adequate facilities, and stimulating audience interest.
