Successful Presenting and Public Speaking

In this lively and interactive two-day workshop the participants prepared a presentation that they presented to their colleagues. The participants received personal coaching from the native-speaking course leader in addition to moderated feedback from their colleagues. With an eye to the real-world situations encountered when delivering a presentation, participants were given the opportunity to discuss, practice and receive feedback on: Speaking style; how to stand and move; the interest generated by the chosen methods of speech and delivery; clarity and conciseness of explanations; ability to respond to questions and outside stimuli. This workshop was a powerful opportunity to learn by doing, held in a lively yet friendly and supportive atmosphere, which encouraged experimentation and the development of new skills.
