Event Description

How do you capture your audiences’ attention, whether you’re presenting to a small group or to over 200 people?


In this session, you’ll develop and practice key skills for effective presentations, including how to facilitate meetings and engage in strategic conversations. Through group discussions and hands-on workshops, we’ll cover strategies for active listening, interviewing, summarizing, and public speaking and presentations. By the end of this seminar, along with the tools and information that we cover, you’ll be comfortable speaking under pressure, organizing your thoughts quickly into an effective and compelling presentation, managing difficult questions, and ensuring your audience understands—and remembers—your key messages.


In this seminar, you will learn to:

  • Structure your presentations to tell a compelling and memorable story
  • Overcome feeling nervous
  • Anticipate and address questions and objections from your audience
  • Work with the crowd through effective facilitation techniques
  • Use effective presentation aids and materials
