Duration . 2 days (15hrs)



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 the skills
and build the confidence that will make them a better speaker and presenter.
