Public speaking skills are critical to those working at all levels in an organization. Popular NSLS workshop instructor Marianne Rowe-Dimas will help you to boost your confidence and credibility while acquiring the techniques that professionals use to develop and deliver dynamic and convincing presentations. Marianne will demonstrate the proper use of visual aids, the best techniques to control nervousness, and how to make an overall positive impression. If you are fearful of public speaking (no matter what the size of the group) or feel that you spend too much time “umming” and “ahhing” your way through a presentation, this workshop will help you to overcome your fears and bring your speaking skills to a higher level.

At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:
• Successfully make presentations to audiences of all sizes
• Identify the aim of and develop ideas for a presentation
• Effectively use visual aids when presenting
• Reduce general nervousness when presenting before groups of any size
• Detect if your audience is bored and be able to draw them back into the presentation
• Deliver any presentation with confidence and poise
• Successfully use posture and gestures to aid your presentation

Lunch is included
