The Art of Making a Presentation

Making a presentation can be a somewhat taxing, event for those who have a great deal of experience presenting. In fact, there are those who fear making a presentation more than they do death. While that may be hard to believe, just watch how people clam up when they are simply called upon by a presenter to answer a question or provide some personal input on a particular topic. Yet, making a presentation does not have to be that difficult. In fact, with the appropriate training and instruction, nearly anyone can become an accomplished communicator and presenter. In many ways it is a mental block - one that many of us simply need to decide to overcome - that keeps us from performing our best.

Our interactive training program, The Art of Making a Presentation, provides participants with a half-day introduction into how making a presentation can be stress free and effective in the business world or outside of the workplace.

By far, one of the most valuable skills one can possess is the ability to communicate clearly and succinctly. The Art of Making a Presentation workshop focuses on providing participants with a high level introduction to effective communication when making a presentation. Specifically, topics covered including preparation, structure, delivery and strategy. Participants practice by preparing and delivering a presentation that will be used throughout the training program. Each person will be videotaped three times and will then receive coaching and feedback from the group and an instructor.

This learner-centered and non-threatening format allows participants to evaluate personal progress when making a presentation and alter any distracting behaviors or areas of needed improvement. No other half-day presentations skills workshop uses such a comprehensive and effective teaching method. Additional time is spent working on individual exercises, question and answer sessions and group activities. All presentations skills taught in this class are modeled by our senior instructors and enable participants to understand how making a presentation can be effortless.

The Art of Making a Presentation program participants will learn to:

  • Deliver in a clear, concise, and persuasive manner when making a presentation
  • Determine audience attitudes and needs
  • Implement persuasive communication techniques
  • Overcome nervousness when making a presentation
  • Project control and confidence through delivery skills.

  • Enhance body language, eye contact, and gesturing
  • Develop a presentation for use during and after the training session
