In this half-day workshop attendees will earn three PDUs and learn the presentation skills of the best professional speakers and Toastmaster's World Champion of Speaking.

There will be something for everyone to learn in this workshop regardless of experience with speaking and presenting. This session will explore state-of-the-art approaches to opening your presentations with a bang, making an early promise that gets the audience excited about what's to come, and offers a simple roadmap everyone can easily follow.

Attendees will also learn strategies for overcoming fear and anxiety of presenting to any audience, techniques to get and keep an audience's attention, get them to lean in to want to hear more, and how to get even the most resistant audience members to participate and feel engaged in the presentation.

Participants will also have an opportunity to have their most challenging presentation issues addressed so they leave with what they need to make this a highly valuable experience for all.

Attendees Will Learn How To:

  • Overcome the fear and reduce the anxiety of presenting to any audience.
  • Open a presentation with a bang and fulfill the promise to maintain momentum throughout the presentation
  • Use specific language patterns to draw your audience in to hear what you are going to say next.
  • Choose from four different ways to make powerful points so your audience "gets it."
  • Have your audience take your message and apply it immediately and directly into their personal and professional situations.
  • How to get meeting participants to easily share ideas when they typically don't, limit the influence of big personalities, and have everyone feel like they contributed, making all meetings more productive
  • Get your audience to participate in their own learning and enjoy your presentation even more.
  • and much more..
