A word on Business Presentations from Ron Pollak
“When we conceived this business presentations course we focused on two facets of being a success in front of a group of people. The first is the design of the presentation. Frankly, if you’ve got the design right, you’ll be more confident and you’ll find the delivery far, far easier.
The second area of focus is to provide simple, easily adopted, common sense, presentation-delivery practices. So often you’ll see people so overcome with their message (the content) that they lose their audience in its delivery.
If you want to see good delivery learn how to pace your presentation like Tony Blair or Bob Hawke. Learn how your stance affects people’s perception of you and your message. Understand how important your hand and eye-contact is. And much, much more!
All business people who need to speak in front of a group of people will benefit from this course – it will help them acquire the know-how, skills and confidence to gain and retain an audience’s attention so that they communicate their message professionally and effectively.
