How many of you have tried to keep from dozing off when attending a powerpoint session? How many of you catch up on your emails or to-do list during a training? Who’s checked your watch or phone repeatedly during a conference workshop? Who’s thought: “Boy I wish I could get my money back” after a training? What do you think about during a mediocre presentation? How many of you want to deliver trainings and presentations to your staff where they aren’t tempted to do those things themselves? Learning Outcomes: participants will look at the current best practices on effective presentations; explore your goals for your presentations - both content and delivery goals; give you a framework to build the most effective ones you can; provide some experiential exercises that you can add into your presentations for content delivery. Behavioral Outcomes: participants will be able to: Deliver content in a variety of methods: verbal, visual, experiential, written; Bravely edit and revamp your existing content and delivery systems; Incorporate a variety of activities into your trainings and presentations; Energize your audiences by targeting your delivery style during the session; and Engage your audiences through participation.
