Think about all the times you present your ideas and yourself. Every business or personal interaction you have is an opportunity to contribute your thoughts, wants, or needs. Mostly we just do what comes naturally to us. As a result, sometimes we get what we want and other times we don’t.
The same principles apply when you’re presenting to an individual or to a group of hundreds. Whether you’re simply presenting information to keep others informed, to stimulate discussion or debate, or to persuade others to adopt an idea, this programme will set you on the right path to achieve your objectives.
It's a great add on to our Interpersonal Communication and Business Writing programmes.
