Presentation Skills in English | MIFHow to design and deliver presentations with impact?

We all have experienced unclear, dull presentations, which seem to have nothing to do with us. That hardly has been the intention of the presenter, so what has gone wrong?

How to capture the attention of your audience and get them to grasp your main message?

In this training you will practise your skills to give inspiring presentations, which are easy to follow and address the interests of your audience. The focus is on the three most important cornerstones for delivering impressive presentations:

  1. Effective Structure for Presentations
  2. Communicative Visuals for Presentations
  3. Convincing Delivery of Presentations

These topics are described in more detail below.

You could be working in sales, finance, R&D, HR, management, administration – and your typical audience can range from a few persons up to hundreds of listeners. The key thing is that you need to effectively convey your message to your audience, i.e., to increase the effectiveness and memorability of your presentations.
