A Skill-Sharpening Workshop

HOW TO BE A PERSUASIVE PRESENTER:

PRESENTATION SKILLS FOR COMMUNICATORS

 

Co-sponsored by IABC Philadelphia and LaSalle University

 

How do you feel when you have to make a presentation? Are you comfortable and confident, or do you experience heart-pounding stage fright at the thought of standing before a podium and audience with a microphone in hand?

 

Like it or not, presenting is a key part of being a professional communicator.  Whether you frequently make formal presentations to clients or senior management, or you just want to make your voice heard in a meeting, you’re using presentation skills.  Presenting well can help us sell our ideas — and ourselves.

 

The good news about presenting is that you can improve with training and practice.  This workshop will help you sharpen your presentation skills and conquer the concerns that plague even veteran presenters.  You’ll learn:

  • How to reduce “stage fright”
  • How to open and close a presentation effectively
  • How to capture and retain the attention of your audience
  • How to emphasize key points effectively
  • How to be persuasive
  • How to write power points that include just enough copy, but not too much
  • How to liven up presentations with the use of graphics, sound effects and other visuals
  • How to sound natural and relaxed while presenting
  • How to maximize audience engagement
  • How to encourage questions and feedback

When:   Thursday, April 26, 2012 from 5:30-8:00 pm
