Do you have, or are you aspiring to have, a role where you frequently present to others? Do you want to brush up on your communication skills? If the answer is yes, join us for this high-energy, interactive half-day program, presented by Mindful Communications, which is targeted to help attendees get more comfortable communicating in front of a group. Participants will increase self-awareness, learn (and practice) baseline presentation skills and recognize that feedback is the centerpiece for continued improvement. Verbal & nonverbal delivery skills and development opportunities are identified, and participants walk away with techniques that can be applied immediately.

During the training, participants will be videotaped and will privately review the footage. Due to the format of the workshop, there will be a pre-work assignment passed along to complete in advance.

 

Who Should Attend?

The target participants are individuals who want to level up their presentation and communication skills; this includes leaders who inspire performance, salespeople looking to win more business, workshop facilitators and meeting collaborators. In short, anyone who works with people will benefit from this session.  

Space at this workshop is limited due to the format of the course. Each company may register only two employees.
