Description

If your goal is to become a more influential leader or a better manager, this one-day course on creating impactful presentations and communicating more effectively is for you.

Great ideas have no value if they're not effectively conveyed.

If your goal is to become a more influential leader or a better manager, look no further than your own communication skills.

Your ability to present in an engaging and influential way—whether that be to a room full of colleagues, or to the employees you see every day—controls how valuable your ideas are perceived.

Refine the communication skills you bring to formal and informal settings.

Communication, like any skill, requires practice, guidance, and feedback. In this one-day course, you’ll get all three.

The class combines mini-lectures, exercises, activities, and engaging video examples to provide you with practical tools and takeaways on how to improve your presentation and communication style. You’ll also have an opportunity to practice your newly acquired presentation skills and receive personalized feedback.
