The Presentation Skills Comprehensive Performance System and Training Program:

The comprehensive in-house program begins with a half or full day workshop for all attendees. The initial half or full day session consists of a complete overview of the tips, tools, techniques, and necessary skills you must have to deliver powerful presentations and convincingly communicate your ideas to anyone, anytime, anywhere.

After this first session, the participants will be divided up into groups of 5. Each group of 5 will meet for up to a half day. Each attendee will prepare a 5-minute presentation to give to their group. The other 4 attendees in the group and the instructor will provide critiques. All attendees will also be videotaped. We will review each tape. After reviewing the videotape, each attendee will then be offered the opportunity to deliver their same presentation over with an emphasis on eliminating their weaknesses and enhancing their strengths. Even though the instructor may be with your company for days (depending on number of attendees), no participant will be out of the office for more than one to one and half days.
