Oral Presentation Skills Seminar

Nearly anyone who has attended an education session, conference, sales presentation, company-wide meeting or other oral presentation event can point to examples of exceptional presenters and equally dreadful presenters. Some individuals have a natural talent for presenting that charms audiences and enables them to deliver persuasive oral presentations. Other individuals may be blessed with incredible subject knowledge but lack the oral presentation skills to adequate communicate with their audience members. Two presenters delivering the same message with vastly different oral presentation skills can ultimately have a completely opposite effect on those to whom they are speaking. Understanding how to take steps to improve oral presentation skills can enable a poor presenter to turn into a persuasive presenter.

Our half-day training session, Oral Presentation Skills Seminar, teaches participants how to improve communication skills when providing a presentation to business colleagues, clients, association members or neighbors.

This valuable training program enables participants to focus on oral presentation skills in a non-threatening and learner-centered environment. All skills and methodologies taught are designed to improve oral presentation skills while increasing personal communication effectiveness. Training discussions focus on areas such as the ability to determine and understand audience needs, enhance oral communication skills, improve visual image and handle question and answer sessions. Training skills can be used whether one has to present at a departmental meeting or deliver an oral presentation at a trade association event.

Participants practice by utilizing content they would ideally present within 90 days of the training class. A senior training instructor will videotape participants three times and will provide coaching to ensure individualized feedback during all group sessions. This personalized approach allows participants to evaluate personal progress and improve oral presentation skills. Other training activities such as exercises, group discussions and question and answer sessions reinforce the learning process.

Oral Presentation Skills Seminar (Half-Day) participants will learn to:

  • Deliver an oral presentation in a clear, concise, and persuasive manner
  • Enhance personal voice projection, articulation, pacing, and fluency
  • Enhance personal body language, eye contact, and gesturing
