Delivering Dynamic Presentations
This two-day workshop guides you through all the steps of planning, organizing, and presenting a formal or informal presentation. This introductory course uses a practical, involving workshop approach whereby you will plan, develop, and present an actual presentation on a topic of your choice or topic that you and your group have been tasked to deliver from commencement to close. During the two days, “Communication Skills” and components of are stressed (verbal, non-verbal, voice, feedback (giving and receiving)). Video recording and feedback/analysis of practice presentations are used to make your presentations more dynamic and effective. As the presentation is delivered by the instructor, he/she models a variety of presentation styles and delivery formats.
The key to a dynamic and engaging presentation is “Communications”. In addition to this course addressing the obvious things like grabbers, objectives, content, and visual aids, the following are just as important as the audience will be subconsciously taking them in:
- Your voice – how you say it is as important as what you say.
- Body language – a subject in its own right and something about which much has been written and said. In essence, your body movements express what your attitudes and thoughts really
- Feedback – last but not least, how to give and receive feedback effectively, during and after the presentation.
Practice…practice…practice! will build confidence towards a dynamic and effective presentation.
- Multimedia – slide deck
- Presentation Workbook: step-by-step presentation skills planning/delivery workbook

Due to the methodology and the time required to record/critique individual presentations, the audience size is limited to 8-10 participants. If more than 10 attendees are in attendance, we suggest that the group be split on the 2nd day, and defer half the group to an alternate 2nd date.

Anyone who will be making prepared or impromptu presentations to groups of people in a formal or informal setting (meeting or conference).
