Business Presentation Skills

Duration: 2 days

Program Outline

In business, lack of presentation skills can destroy business - often without even us knowing it. Think of the last poor business presentation you attended. The presenter probably didn't even realize that he has spoilt it.

Business Presentation Skills is a two-day practice intensive workshop which will equip the participants with the competency of not only making excellent presentations but also engaging the audience interactively.

In this practice oriented workshop, you will learn how to captivate, motivate, inspire and persuade - transforming "standard presentations & sales kits" into a two way communication session which support the persuasion model of getting information, giving information & getting commitment.

You will learn how to apply tested methodology to overcome nervousness and deliver with a style complementary of your own personality. This course will also focus on teaching you how to present information, product or services from the audience (customer's) perspective. You will learn how to make boring statistics and numbers come to life.

The skill of presenting well is an important competency in business as well as personal success. We can't communicate well if we can't present well. Since presentation has become a regular feature of our daily life, isn't it time that you equip yourself with this essential skill?
