Workshop 2: Improving presentation skills for communicators

Communication implies a two way process, whether it is one to one or within a group. Do you know how effective you are as a communicator? Are your presentations effective? Are your messages reaching the right people in the best way? How are you perceived as a communicator? In a context where people are submerged in information, we need to find news ways to connect with our audiences. If you can demonstrate value or benefit of what you’re saying, you’ll keep the audience focused on you! This workshop will help you answer those questions and help to perfect your capacity as an effective communicator. Participants will be filmed throughout the workshop in order to maximize the experience with ongoing feedback from the trainers. Seeing yourself on video provides an additional value both during and after the workshop.
