Too many presentations fail to inspire their audiences because they focus on information, not inspiration.
Delivered in partnership with The Humphrey Group Inc., this powerful program explores a new communications approach: one that will enable you to present your ideas so that others are inspired to act upon them. You will learn how to deliver presentations with a clear message, persuasive structure and compelling language. You will learn to create visuals that present ideas, rather than information. And you’ll build skills in projecting a confident yet natural presence in every interaction.
To ingrain your learning experience, the program includes hands-on presentation workshops in formal, informal and off-the-cuff situations.
This course will be led by experienced professional consultants from The Humphrey Group, Inc.
Presenting as a Leader combines practical, applied learning with extensive personal feedback. Participants will have the opportunity to work on scripts for an upcoming presentation or re-do an old presentation. They will receive extensive personal feedback on their speaking notes, their slides, and their delivery skills. This program includes videotaping and review of the footage in the program.
