"In business you can never learn anything more important than communication”. – Max Markson
Does your job require you to present at conferences, lead meetings, run seminars, facilitate groups and speak in other public situations? Do you have to speak up at meetings, lead safety meetings, do pre-starts and run toolbox meetings? Do you have to respond to questions off the cuff?
The effective public speaking skills workshop is designed to take your public speaking and presentation skills to the next level so that you can confidently and effectively deliver your message. You will also learn what you should do to control nerves, build rapport, engage and influence your audience.
