High Impact Presentations focuses on structuring an effective presentation that will build credibility, enhance a client relationship and clearly convey your concept. Participants will explore the optimum use of voice and gesture to create a lasting impression as well as a variety of presentation styles, ranging from a formal speech to a casual meeting or contentious conversation.
Participants are given multiple opportunities to develop and practice innovative presentations and will be videotaped, evaluated and mentored by an expert until they have achieved the ultimate goal--the ability to deliver a masterful presentation.
A presentation is a critical business tool. Whether your communication goal is to persuade, sell or inspire, your presentation is what will differentiate you from your competitors. Think of it as the jewel in your crown. When properly executed, your presentation will make you stand out. Your audience will view you as prepared, informed and confident.
