Building presentation skills




Like it or not, when it comes to presentations entertainment comes before education. That is, most people, most of the time, want to be entertained first and educated second. Even academics!

Yet, there are very few (if any) formal training sessions focused on good presentations.

This program aims to rectify that.

In this half-day training, we’ll get hands on with your latest research, article or information session. We’ll look at ways you can make it more entertaining – without reducing the educational content. We’ll also cover a process you can apply to future presentations.
