The thought of giving a presentation often ranks at the top of the list of what people fear most. This new program will give you the framework needed to develop and deliver an effective, memorable presentation. You will learn proven tips and examples that will guide you through the presentation process no matter how large the audience.
Organizations depend on communication for success. Their people communicate through presentations to large and small groups, inside and outside the organization. Effective presenters are the leaders in the organization; they are first in line for promotions and raises; they are successful and trusted managers and executives. Leadership requires excellent presentation skills.
Look around you and you will see that, no matter what your career or what position you hold in your organization, your ability to present is a part of your job. As you move into positions with more responsibility, your ability to present to large or small groups becomes critical.
This certificate program is exceptionally personal. Whether you are a novice presenter or one with hundreds of presentations under your belt, you will be in a setting in which you can learn and grow to the extent you desire. You will set your own goals, take as many risks as you wish, and push yourself as far as you want. You will receive feedback from three perspectives—those of the facilitator, your colleagues, and yourself. This well-rounded feedback ensures that you will learn what makes a great presenter and what you need to do to face your next audience with more confidence, competence, and credibility than ever before.
