## Course Outline
The program covers these key modules:
Communication – Definition & Components
- Key components of effective communication are discussed. As a result, participants consider communication in a new practical light and relate this to their presenting style.
- Participants present every day of the workshop and are videotaped. Other participants and the trainer critique each presentation, discussing strengths as well as areas to improve. Through this process participants become more aware of their own strengths and areas to improve and can measure their day-by-day improvement.
Structures will be given on how to organize ideas for presentations in a time saving
Informative and persuasiv
The charts enable busy executives to map out a presentation in minutes - while ensuring the presentation has an appropriate objective and will convince the listeners.
Planning a Tailored Presentation
- We discuss the difference between the features and benefits of particular products or services, and demonstrate how to develop a persuasive strategy that ensures the use of the right amount of the right kind of information needed to convince a particular decision maker. Participants gain an understanding of the power of the specifically tailored, persuasive message
Gestures & Movement
- Participants are made aware of the importance of movement, gestures and body language and the different moods and impressions they can create. This serves to enhance the individual’s confidence to present to different groups in a comfortable, natural and convincing manner.
Participants share how to integrate visual aids into an informative and persuasive presentation and how to avoid the common mistakes.
As a result, participants will be able to plan, create and use visual aids smoothly and professionally to assist the communication of key ideas.
Handling Rough Times
- Sometimes an audience can be hostile. Participants learn how to prepare for and handle such a situation in order to feel more comfortable and confident when dealing with hostile audiences.
- Every day of the workshop, participants will spend some time on confidence-building exercises: from eye contact, movement, gestures to voice modulation. This enhances awareness and increases comfort and confidence when standing before an audience
