Speaking and Presenting with Confidence
During the opening session we combine a look at the fundamentals of presenting, with an assessment of each person's unique presentation style, experience and skill, together with what they would now like to achieve. The second part of the presentation course is work on prepared presentations. This is not intended to rehearse the presentations; rather the presentation material is used to stretch the participants and to incorporate the principles worked on earlier in the day.
