So, the presentation is prepared and practiced. Great. But this means nothing to the audience. When you stand there in front of them, all that matters to them is what you look like and what you say. This course is about delivering your message, and the techniques you need to do this. First of all, you have to make a positive first impression on your audience members by how and where you stand, by your appearance, and how you look at them. Then, you must lead your audience through your message, referencing what is important through the language you use, and the physical techniques you employ. Finally, the course shows what is needed to make a presentation really memorable, the 'wow' factor that outstanding presenters have, and how to achieve it.

Target Audience
Anyone in an organization who needs the skills to inform, persuade, and convince colleagues or clients by means of presentations.
