Presentation skills training: presenting successfully
Improving your personal impact. Identify and avoid presentation errors.
Expert, credible and personal – these are the factors that make a presentation convincing. In this seminar, participants find out how to apply the appropriate blend of dramatic composition, confident speech, effective body language and professional use of media to achieve an optimum effect. Video recordings and detailed follow-up allow participants to recognise their own potential and consciously tap into their strengths.
An expert, assured and convincing manner is required to be able to „sell“ ideas and products successfully in presentations. Listeners naturally expect good preparation, clear structures, an appealing presentation, confident use of media and a convincing display.
Seminar objectives: Participants learn how to prepare and deliver a presentation to optimum effect.
