Craft Presentations That Win With ODC
EFFECTIVE SKILLS FOR A WINNING PRESENTATION
Presentations when done right can be a key differentiating factor for your organization or personal brand. Learn how to deliver successful presentations, one after the other in this 1 day course with ODC Training.
Why Take This Course?
A great presentation does not just happen. It is planned, rehearsed, then delivered with flair.
A great presenter is one who learns the skills of presentation - not one who hopes for talent to carry them through. Public speaking is a skill, not a talent. A great presenter also has the
personal confidence that comes from knowing what they want to say and being comfortable
with their communication skills.
In this two-day workshop, participants will master and hone these essential skills and build the confidence that will make them a better speaker and presenter.
In this practical 2 day (15 hours) workshop, participants will acquire the necessary skills and mindset to:
Plan and prepare a presentation
Reduce nervousness and fear
Gain rapport with their audience
Recognise how visual aids can create impact and attention
Create a professional presence
Deliver a presentation with skill and confidence
