Programmes Summary and Objectives

Business Presentation SkillsWhat comes into your mind when you read or hear the words, Business presentation? To most people, a powerfully prepared PowerPoint presentation with graphs comes into mind and to some a down-to-earth flipchart presentation with some colourful animation comes into mind.

Does it really matter whether a presentation is delivered on a PowerPoint, Flipchart, podium or even a whiteboard? Does the size of the audience matters? What about the vocal qualities; the tone of voice, pace, pitch and projection? Do they play an important role in delivering a presentation?

A lot of things have been said about eye contact and what are the facts and myths? Does power dressing enhance the quality of my presentation? What about my body posture, hand gestures, facial expression and movement?

If you are interested in finding the answers to the above mentioned questions and learning more about how to deliver powerful, meaningful, purposeful and relevant business presentation, then; this is the programme to attend.

Business Presentation Skills is a programme where learners will experience fun in action at its best while feeling the fear and doing it anyway in order to get out of the comfort zone. This is 20% theory and 80% practical; the learners will get ample time to refine their presentation skills.

I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. I felt fear myself more times than I remember, but I did it behind a mask of boldness. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers fear.
