Mastering Your Presentations — Public Workshop

No-nonsense communication strategies for getting business done

This comprehensive workshop is interactive and realistic. It builds the skills you need to more effectively communicate your message and move business forward.

Learning Objectives

This comprehensive workshop is interactive and realistic. It builds the skills business presenters need to more effectively communicate their message and move business forward. Throughout the class, you will work on your own real-life presentation. Taught by two instructors, this workshop uses video-recorded exercises and private, instructor-led video review to help you identify and develop the skills you need to succeed. You will learn to

  • Frame your presentations so that they are listener-focused and persuasive
  • Create effective visual aids to support key messages
  • Manage nervousness and gain self-awareness
  • Engage listeners in a comfortable, flexible conversation
  • Be clear and concise
  • Use visuals effectively whether seated or standing, projected, hand-held, or hard copy
  • Think on your feet
  • Facilitate fruitful interactions with listeners
  • Get the business of the presentation done effectively and efficiently

Getting Business Done & Growing Leadership Capability
Everything we do is designed to help people get business done and grow their capabilities. While a particular workshop may focus on a specific business goal—closing a deal, making a decision, learning something new, or gaining alignment—every workshop is designed to help the participants be more comfortable, effective, and confident communicators. When employees communicate more effectively, leadership capability increases, and careers advance. This brings positive results for your team and company.


Blended Learning
Mastering Your Presentations includes pre-work and access to eCoach. You’ll receive reusable job aids, reference materials, and your own in-class videos to help reinforce what you learn in class. You’ll also receive a copy of The Orderly Conversation: Business Presentations Redefined.

Private Coaching and Video Review
Capturing learners on video as you work on your real-life content, which is followed by private video playback and coaching, is an essential element to this training. It helps you understand your natural strengths (and weaknesses) and grow your self-awareness so that you can apply what you learn in class to the variety of situations you face outside of it.

Intended For
You should have some business presentation and PowerPoint experience.
