Two, three hour training sessions at The Engineering Center.
The sessions will focus on presentation and communication skills.  The program will be designed to help participants build confidence and credibility when presenting to clients.  In addition, they will increase their ability to sell their ideas and gain commitment.  The program focuses on:

  • Presenting information so that it is related to people of varying skill levels
  • Using voice and gesture to create a strong impression
  • Dealing with difficult questions and maintaining composure
  • Creating effective visuals that assist in increasing self-confidence

As a result of this program, participants will be better able to:

  • Project confidence in front of a group
  • Create an effective opening for a presentation

  • Define the goals of a presentation and structure it accordingly
  • Be more persuasive with supporting facts, examples, and analogies
  • Sell themselves and their ideas effectively
  • Deal with difficult questions and remarks professionally
  • Present technical information to relate to people of varying skill levels
