Overview

Public speaking, giving presentations, speaking up in a meeting, speaking to an audience can trigger nerves, even in the toughest of people. Presenting is thought to be the most challenging of tasks to accomplish with confidence, poise and influence yet it’s a common method for communicating in today’s workplace. In the board room, staff room, training room or down a camera on Zoom – presenting is about influencing. No matter the type of presentation, the presenter’s role is to influence the audience.

Do you relate to any of these situations?:

  • Have you ever walked away from a conversation with a senior leader wishing you’d said something differently or communicated your point more effectively?
  • Have you ever left a meeting wishing you’d made a certainpoint or contributed more to the discussion?
  • Do you hesitate to turn on your camera when called on to contribute in an online meeting?

The ability to command the attention of the room or zoom, and to present with influence and confidence are paramount for women in leadership. Strong presentation skills are essential for women that want to advance their careers and stand-out in the workplace. Learn the fundamental skills to be a more powerful and concise communicator, tackle your nerves and get your message across. The Presenting to Influence for Women Masterclass is a blend of facilitator led and experiential learning.
