Presentation Skills Training

You'll get a "Presentation Builder" to help you prepare all your future presentations
Every participant in the 2-day Effective Presentation Skills workshop gets a "Presentation Builder". This nifty tool is a specially designed PowerPoint template that has two parts. The first is a step-by-step presentation development tool that makes it easy for you to determine exactly what information to include in your presentation. The second part shows you how to take that information and lay it out in a slide presentation. It shows you slide-by-slide (from the opening slide to the closing slide) what every slide needs to say and how the information needs to be displayed on each slide. And the neat thing about the "Presentation Builder" is that because it's a template, it can be used over and over again, every time you prepare a new presentation.

How the 1-day and 2-day workshops compare
The 1-day presentation skills workshop has two modules: how to design effective slides and how to deliver a slide presentation. The 2-day workshop spends more time on each of those modules and adds a third module on how to prepare a presentation; how to get the right focus, how to determine the type and amount of information to include and how to structure the content of the presentation so that it is easy for the audience to understand and accept. Additionally the 2-day workshop includes more practice. In the 2-day workshop everyone presents (on camera) at least fives times. In the 1-day workshop everyone presents three times.
