Who Should Attend?
The class is ideal for junior staffers and people who have not had a lot of experience presenting in front of small to large groups.
- Impromptu Presentation Experience
- Real Time Critique and Feedback from Instructor and Peers
- Identifying weakness and strengths
- Overcoming Fear
- Tips & Tricks to boost confidence
What to Expect:
A one-day fully immersive class split up between lecture and exercises. The students will have the opportunity to learn presentation skills tips, tricks and theory and then use what they have learned by partaking in a handful of exercises where they will get up in front of the group and present. Exercises range from Storytelling, Eye Contact and On-The-Spot presentations. Theory focuses on 3 main elements: YOU (your style), THEM (the audience) and HOW (how to build a deck and how to deliver it). We also spend time identifying the 4 Personalities and how to serve each of their needs when presenting. The idea is to mix up the day with hands on training with lecture.
- Learning to identify and accept your speaking style
- The importance of presentation preparation and rehearsal
- Understanding the importance of body language and eye contact
- Learning the art of storytelling
- Understanding the difference between solo and ensemble presentations
- How to use PowerPoint effectively and not as a distraction
