Presenter Skills Development - Next Date Coming Soon

Presentation skills are the most overlooked and underdeveloped disciplines in corporate America. People get promoted and soon find themselves needing more training for storytelling and public speaking. This program offers participants of different skill levels the opportunity to learn techniques that will quickly make them better presenters and have a positive impact on their careers. Each participant will receive a workbook to help them organize their thoughts and document new insights and techniques.

The live or virtual workshop is designed as a discovery activity, but participants will not be required to role-play or speak in the session. They will learn strategies and techniques that will help them improve their presentation skills. The format of this workshop will help everyone gain insights, ideas and techniques they can use at their current level and in their future.
