Present Yourself

COURSE OVERVIEW


Some people believe that presenting is scarier than disease or death. It doesn’t have to be.

Whether you are leading a team or not, all of us are in the job of influencing and persuading people. Whether this is 1:1 or to a group, this means we need to present our ideas and ourselves.

Because persuasion and influence are now so key to our working lives, we need to understand the fundamentals of how it happens and what we can do to increase our chances of getting the result we want.

In the Present Yourself workshop you will develop your understanding of how persuasion happens as well as how connected an audience’s perception of your topic is to their perception of you. You will also practice organizing your ideas so that are remembered and acted upon.

Influencing someone means more than showing your idea makes sense. You must also connect you and your idea to the audience and their desires. PY workshop builds presentation skills and abilities that help you influence:

  • Don’t introduce yourself, CONNECT WITH THE AUDIENCE.
  • Deliver to their ideas by answering the question, WHAT’S IN IN FOR YOU?
  • Deliver a single strong MESSAGE that resonates with your audience.
  • ALIGN your presence with your ideas so that your audience believes and understands you.
  • ORGANIZE your ideas so that you engage the whole human with the best BUSINESS STORIES.
  • Use Q&A to improve your connection with your audience through ANTICIPATION AND PREPARATION.

Your class was helpful for me. Even I have many experiences regarding presentations in front of people, but I have never thought about those details such as ice breaking, gestures, eye contact, proper level of voice sound, and so on. I believe that your experienced and meticulous comments considerably improved my presentation skills at school and work. Thank you once again for your excellent class.

The courses certainly help me to rethink and analyze about the gaps and common denominators between what I learn in class and what I face every day in the office. I feel however that the courses would certainly help me in the future if my position changes to a more senior managerial level.
