Workshop Synopsis:

You are asked to say a few words to the group. Or the group would like to ask you a few questions. Your heart leaps, your mouth goes dry, your mind goes blank. How can you avoid a total meltdown?

Delivering a prepared presentation is daunting enough. But having to give a presentation without time to prepare is another matter. Where do you begin? How should you conclude? What can you do to look and sound like the capable professional you are?

Whether you are in the boardroom, in a team meeting, or celebrating at a social occasion, you never know when you might be called upon to speak. You will never be at a loss for words once you master a few simple techniques and templates for thinking and speaking on your feet.

Note: All participants are expected to speak off the cuff before the group. You cannot prepare for this, but you will survive … and enjoy it!


Who should attend:

Managers, department heads, sales professionals, team leaders, C-level executives, lawyers, government officials, lecturers, trainers, accounting and finance professionals, IT and technical professionals, and others who wish to improve their speaking, thinking, and presentation skills.
