Present with Confidence

Conquer your fears, speak from your heart and engage every audience with powerful presentation techniques

When you are called upon to speak your mind, do you gladly take on the challenge, or shy away from opportunities to make your voice heard? In our fast-paced work environments, we all need to present ourselves clearly, powerfully and quickly in order to succeed. For many, just the thought of standing in front of a crowd can make their palms sweat. Are you one of them?   In this interactive, two-day workshop, communication skills trainer Heather Hansen will show you simple ways to format your thoughts, develop your content, and deliver presentations with confidence. She will help you build on your natural style and ability to become an influential presenter who connects with audience members every time. You will learn to think on your feet and never be caught off guard, even when faced with the most difficult questions. Whether you need to speak in front of one person or one thousand, this practical workshop will give you the confidence to do so with ease.
