Course Description

Are your customers tired of the “same ole, same ole” presentation design? It goes something like this: “My name is X, and I’m going to talk to you about Y. First,… second,… finally….” Instead of the routine drill, reduce your presentation preparation time while increasing your impact with a repeatable step-by-step presentation preparation approach. This 4-hour presentation skills preparation session will lead you through a seven-step process for preparing a dynamic presentation quickly. Presentation workshop participants will bring a work-related presentation as a baseline for hands-on practice in structuring a presentation for maximum impact.

Key Objectives

  • Consider your audience for the proper presentation road map
  • Anticipate special audience reactions and structure your presentation accordingly
  • Outline ideas in three ways for three different presentation purposes
  • Vary the structure of a presentation to match the audience and purpose
  • Open your presentation with an attention-getter
  • Engage the audience with interactivity to inspire, persuade, build rapport, and increase retention
  • Add “finishing touches” (such as analogies, illustrations, anecdotes, statistics, quotations, alliteration)
  • Conclude your presentation with high impact

Additional Information

Workshop participants will receive copies of the texts Speak With Confidence: Powerful Presentations That Inform, Inspire, and Persuade (McGraw-Hill) and Creating Personal Presence: Look, Talk, Think, and Act Like a Leader (Berrett-Koehler), a presentation planner for use as a back-on-the-job reference, and job-aid cards.


Anyone who makes presentations to supervisors, colleagues, or customers.
