How to persuade and influence your audience effectively
OBJECTIVES AND METHODS
The greatest barrier to making effective presentations is lack of confidence. This programme initially develops delegates' self-belief and inspires confidence in themselves. Instruction on demonstrative skills and a series of practical sessions follow the confidence-building and provide a very strong platform on which to build effective presentations. Delegates will learn how to enhance their technical knowledge by delivering powerful presentations which command attention and hold interest. The programme also provides an on-going development aid for them to take away and use as reference. All interactive sessions are recorded and remain with the delegate, together with the trainer's comments and critique.
