Presentation Skills

Barry Brophy

Presentations have a bad reputation. People don’t like giving them and audiences don’t like sitting through them, and many (if not most) presentations are dull and ineffective. But this makes no sense if you think about the many strengths of a presentation. They are live, personal, emotional, physical, anecdotal, three-dimensional, visual, interactive communications that allow you to really engage with your audience. The good news is you don’t have to master news skills to do this, just harness the conversational skills you have been fine-tuning since you were born. Through theory, examples, stories, conversations, videos and sample presentations, the course will tell you how to create a presentation you can deliver as fluently as you would converse with a friend.
