Surveys regularly reveal that public speaking is the most feared business activity and is dreaded even more than death!
Almost every research degree requires you to present your work to colleagues, at meetings, in seminars or at specialist conferences. At conferences, it can also be important to understand how these skills apply to the “business networking” opportunities that present themselves or to have and to use skills to chair a session effectively.
This workshop will begin by exploring the basic components of communication including listening skills, the power of body language, how to make an impact and strategies to hold the attention of your audience.
Participants are invited to deliver a short presentation and to receive coaching and feedback within the supportive workshop environment.
As a result of this workshop participants will:
- Understand the contributions of words, voice and body language
- Know four essential questions to answer when planning for a meeting
- Have structures to plan the content of a presentation
- Be clear about strategies to hold the attention of your audience
- Be prepared for dealing with questions
- Have effective strategies to deal with “presentation stress”
This workshop will be delivered to meet your specific needs.
