This course gives you the opportunity to evaluate yourself as a presenter, with instant video, peer and expert feedback.
We being with YOU: eye contact voice and body language.
We explore the use of repetition, rhetorical questions and the magic THREE with examples from former US presidents and a great clip from the Dilemma.
I like you but I don’t need you
This is the warning message from the course: your audience comes to the presentation to see you, NOT to watch you read off the screen. You need to lead and not follow some pre-cooked powerpoint package.
We look at the importance of preparation and the value of really grounding the opening of your presentation. Different opening gambits: from provocation to rhetorical questions; facts and figures, data and narrative or personal experience.
We teach you how to craft and deliver a technical section, handle questions, plot a storyboard and close effectively.
Above all, acknowledging that we cannot change you, we look at the tips and techniques that will work for you with your audience in your reality.
