Event description
In this highly interactive course, you'll learn and apply strategies to develop and deliver killer presentations.

About this Event

It doesn’t matter how great an idea is if it’s not presented in a way that’s both clear and compelling. All too often we don’t pay enough attention to how we present, even though it’s one of the most crucial skills in almost every industry. Strong Training and Coaching is offering a LA-based presentation skills course, delivered by one of our leading trainers, Jurene Fremstad.

In this highly interactive course, we’ll review and apply strategies to optimize all components of successful presentation development and delivery. This course is for employees who develop and delivers presentations internally or externally, between 4-12 years of experience.

WHAT YOU'LL LEARN

  • We’ll start by refreshing our awareness of the foundational principles of persuasive presentation — from clarity and simplicity to passion and surprise — how to hit the brain’s “save” button.
  • CONTEXT: THE WHO AND WHY Persuasion doesn’t happen in a vacuum — it happens between individuals, groups, and with an audience — the “who.” Using the DiSC model as our foundation, we explore the preferences different styles have in terms of how they take in information and make decisions - and more importantly how we adjust our presentations accordingly.
  • CONTENT: THE WHAT We take a close look at both the tangibles (story, structure, design) and intangibles (clarity, memorability, and simplicity) of persuasive content. We share a step by-step process for writing compelling presentations, as well as tips and tricks to keep in mind.
  • DELIVERY: THE HOW A majority of people fear public speaking even more than death. We assuage that fear by looking at the elements of persuasive delivery, including voice, gestures, image, confidence, and authenticity. We pay special attention to nerves — how to manage them and make that energy work for rather than against you.
  • REHEARSING EFFECTIVELY Rehearsal is the single biggest factor in delivering a compelling presentation. We share best practices around rehearsal – including distinguishing between blocking and dress rehearsal, a framework for high-stakes rehearsal, and a tool for preparing for Q&A.
  • PUTTING IT INTO PRACTICE Participants will apply what they’ve learned into their own presentations. They will be filmed and receive helpful feedback from their peers and coaching from the facilitator.
