Presentations - preparing, developing and delivering
Training Course Outline

Mastering software such as PowerPoint is important but will not give anyone the vital skills and expertise necessary for developing and delivering an effective presentation.  Learning about the software alone is a bit like learning how to play chess by only learning the way chess pieces move without understanding the strategy involved.

This one-day course goes beyond the technology and covers the methods, techniques and psychological principles involved in developing and delivering effective presentations.
