PRESENTATION SKILLS FOR BUSINESS STUDIES STUDENTS
This course is currently suspended. Please check back as soon as lockdown restrictions are lifted. The four-hour interactive workshop is based on acquiring public speaking skills and includes the usual presentation preparation checklist and some intense training on voice projection, stage presence, audience engagement … the difference is the underlying lesson which is to think of yourself as a story-teller. We explore the creation of a presentation as a story to be refined and narrated as it would be by a professional story-teller, with any slides added after the narrative, purely as illustrations. The benefits of this approach are quite astonishing in some cases, and well-received by everyone we have worked with so far.
