Within the business sphere, one would find that not a lot of people are good at public speaking. You could even say that virtually everyone needs to get some practice, and preferably good guidance, before they can learn to stay calm when facing a room full of people. Having all eyes on you is an uncomfortable experience and it takes time to get used to. However, even if you can manage to control your stage fright and stay focused, it doesn’t necessarily mean that your presentation won’t put people to sleep. This is usually the case with long presentations on a very dull subject, with the presenter speaking in a monotone voice and dimming the lights to play a PowerPoint presentation.
During this course, there is no presumption here to ‘teach’ participants on how to be a great presenter. This course will therefore serve as refresher that will trigger old knowledge and hopefully impart new ones. We will focus on body language and postures when delivering presentations; design templates and styles for your specific audiences; how to use graphics that will make presentations effective and key words and phrases to use during presentations that will remain in the minds of the audience. Participants will be given the opportunity to test their presentations skills, as it is important for them to get feedback in a closed professional environment.
