Effective Presentation Skills – Training Course Outline

Companies increasingly require writers of reports, business cases, proposals, in fact all types of documents, to present them to boards or management teams. If you have previously concentrated only on the written documents, training in writing presentations will help you make the jump to presenting your ideas successfully. An effective presentation skills training course will increase your confidence and professionalism.

The way you present your ideas or a solution to an audience is extremely important. People like to feel they are dealing with someone who understands them and their needs, and you have one opportunity to make a good impression. You may know your subject extremely well but if you do not present it clearly and logically, your audience will doubt that you do. This course builds on your existing skills as a presenter. Polish your technique so that your presentations help you to meet your professional goals.
