The very best way for people to learn persuasive presentation skills is not to listen, watch and try to emulate, but to practice. In this intense but friendly workshop, participants get a chance to try out what they’re learning in front of the group, with live feedback, in a supportive environment. Each person will make several mini-presentations as they develop their personal style, practice new techniques and learn first-hand what others respond to best about his or her natural style.

  • Finding an intrinsic style
  • Mastering physical presence and the power of voice
  • Organizing effectively
  • How to tell a business story
  • Presenting with a team

This highly interactive workshop is available in half-day and full day formats. To maximize participation by everyone in the workshop, we limit the number of participants to no more than 12 for the half-day version, and no more than 20 for the full day version (the recommended length for maximum learning outcomes).
