Strategies for Developing Effective Presentation Skills

Program Description

Develop your presentation skills to transform yourself from inexperienced speaker to skilled presenter.


Unstable economic times can mean fast and frequently unexpected organizational changes, greater responsibilities and new projects and initiatives. Being a confident, polished speaker is not only necessary but well-advised in order to communicate such matters effectively and persuasively.
