Effective Business Presentation Skills

Workshop Overview

Making formal presentations is a daunting task for most. Some studies have shown that for many, the fear of making a presentation is almost equal to that of dying. However, ability to present effectively and with confidence is a significant skill and may lead to excellent opportunities. Many jobs and functions leave us with little choice but to make presentations. What perhaps is less known is that ability to present effectively can be learnt and improved through practice (similar to learning a new skill or a new sport).


The two day workshop shall coach participants the various methods and techniques to prepare and deliver a successful presentation. The attendees will receive tips on how to manage the audience and will learn to manage their own nervousness. The workshop shall include participants making presentations that are recorded for review and analysis. The program shall also include role playing sessions.


The workshop covers four main areas: Body Language, Use of Voice and Modulation, Content Development and Handling Audience including Group Dynamics.
