Target Audience: All Staff
These half day workshops will benefit staff at all levels by giving them the tools to communicate effectively in presentations to audiences of all sizes. Various tactics will be explored to overcome nervousness when presenting so that participants will feel more confident in their ability to present effectively.
The first session will look at the ‘how to’ of presentation skills with a chance to reflect before the second session looks at reviewing current or forthcoming presentations and applying some of the tools and techniques from the first session.
You will cover the following elements during the workshops:
- Building rapport with your audience
- The Fight or Flight response
- Verbal and non-verbal cues in your presentation
- The most effective response: using the "parasympathetic" nervous system
