Public Speaking – Presentation Survival School Course



Public Speaking: Presentation Survival School helps learners/trainers working with new presentation hosts and public speakers. Strong presenters rely on both skill and confidence, and this two-day course delivers solid content that encourages growth in both of those areas. Speakers will learn to:

  • Establish rapport
  • Implement nervousness management techniques
  • Appeal to different learning or listening styles
  • Use visual aids to make an impact and command the attention of the audience
  • Create a professional presence
  • Organize information

The course concludes with learners delivering a short presentation to illustrate their newly acquired skills.

This training material can be effectively learnt/delivered as presented in the course package, but learners/trainers can also create a personalized experience by adding anecdotes or images that appeal to a particular learning group. The customization can be done quickly and efficiently because all of our courseware is created using MS Office files. Training material components include: a detailed learner/instructor’s guide, student workbook, pre-assignment, pre-formatted slides, assessments, certificate templates, and more.
