Presentation Skills Training Course - full day tutorial by Damian Conway
Friday 12th October 2012 - Venue: Imperial Hotel, Russell Square, London WC1B 5BB
Description: The best and most effective presentations capture the audience quickly, hold their interest effortlessly, educate and entertain them in equal measure, and sometimes even inspire them.
This class explores simple and effective techniques for achieving those goals in any kind of presentation.
The first half of the class focuses on preparation, content selection, visual design, delivery, handling questions and effective techniques for presenting various kinds of technical information (code, data, statistics, charts, structure diagrams etc.)
The second half of the course is an in-depth tutorial on improving the 'look and feel' of presentation materials – especially Powerpoint/Keynote/Impress presentations. In particular, it demonstrates practical techniques for making your slides not suck!
