Course Outline


Course Length: 6 hours (1 day)

Brief Description:

This course is more than presentation skills. Participants will understand how to influence others using their content, words, intentions, and presence. Techniques are short term because we often go back to customary habits. This course will have participants practicing and developing their abilities into new skills. Presentations will now be engaging and clear and the calls to action more compelling.

Learning Objectives:

At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

- Feel motivated and clear on what and how to present
- Develop methods to help feel calm and confident 
- Set the tone with purpose, intention, and engagement
- Use influencing skills to inspire action
- Use communication skills that support the delivery
- Manage challenging questions and dynamics
- Use body language, voice and facial expressions that are bigger than your slides
- Use Hollywood tips - acting techniques to build your presence and move others

Target Student: 

This course is designed for anyone who delivers presentations and who wish to develop the necessary skills to improve their presence, influencing and communication skills.

I think I underestimated my own knowledge of the program. This is not necessarily at the fault of the course or training provider.
I found the instructor very informative and she addressed all of my questions and concerns.

Too much information in one day - instructor had to race through material, skipping some of it entirely. Start delayed by 20 minutes due to course material not having been properly loaded on computers. These issues continued throughout class, ie some of my important menu tabs were in french, others in english. I had requested an English class. Another student had Excel 2007 instead of Excel 2010, when the rest of us and the instructor were working with 2010. I would have liked to continue to 4:00, but the instructor made it clear that her preference was to leave at 3:30, so no one said anything. The windows had to be opened because the room was too warm, but the people next to the windows were wearing their coats because they were too cold.
