Course Overview

TOP

Effective presentation skills have become an essential professional competency for achieving key goals and influencing the decisions and actions of your audience. Yet many surveys place delivering presentations at or near the top of most feared activities. This course provides the skills and methods needed to comfortably plan, structure, and deliver business presentations for productive outcomes.

Consider how to change your presentation for culturally diverse audiences, important stakeholders, and different delivery formats. Learn how to overcome internal inhibitors, such as nervousness, and mitigate external inhibitors, such as room layout, equipment, temperature, so that you can present with focus and confidence.
