Presentation Skills (1 day)

Overview:

We have to give presentations in almost all walks of life; and especially when working within a business environment. The form of the presentation can be a quick 5 minute overview of a small project to a one lasting several hours that includes a full multi media suite and audio visual aids. The basic format of a presentation however will stay the same. This workshop will introduce you to that basic format and give you the skills, knowledge and ability to start to prepare and deliver presentations for your organisation.
