About the course

Presenting Ideas with Clarity and Confidence

Too many presentations fail to inspire because they focus on information rather than inspiration.

Delivered in partnership with The Humphrey Group Inc., this course explores a new communications approach: one that will enable you to present your ideas so that others are inspired to act upon them. Deliver presentations with a clear message, persuasive structure and compelling language. Create visuals that present ideas rather than information. Project a confident, natural presence in every interaction.

To ingrain your learning experience, the program includes hands-on presentation workshops in formal, informal and off-the-cuff situations
