Presenting at C-Level
This is a comprehensive course covering what you say and how you say it. You'll learn content organization targeted to motivate any audience, how to create clear visual aids, muscle memory/body language exercises, how to manage "stage fright," and strategies for running an effective Q&A session. Presenting at C-Level is meant to be a one-stop shop for all your formal presentation skills needs.
Time commitment: two consecutive eight-hour days (suggested time: 8am–5pm, including lunch)
Recommended group size: 6–10 participants
Participants will work with two instructors, and will be videotaped four times for one-on-one critique.
Each participant will receive an individual videotaped performance and critique sheets, as well as a whole tool kit of customized exercises and strategies for improvement.
The morning session focuses on physical/vocal body language performance skills, two videotaped exercises, and one-on-one critique.
The afternoon session focuses on building content and designing clear PowerPoint slides, followed by a workshop session where they use the course skills to create a real-life talk.
In the morning session, participants deliver the talks they created on day one (which are videotaped) and receive additional one-on-one critique time.
The afternoon session focuses on managing audience interaction and Q&A techniques. Participants have a chance to take a Q&A session (videotaped) and then receive a final one-on-one critique.
