Presentation Skills

When 2,543 adult Americans were surveyed about their 
worst fears, “speaking before a group” topped the list.

Public presentations are made for different purposes, in different environments, and for different audiences.  Whether making after-dinner talks, leading staff meetings, or delivering a keynote address at a business conference, presenters are faced with the same responsibilities: 

Structuring the Presentation
Delivering it Effectively
Fielding Questions From the Floor

Stockard-Elmer & Company provides a supportive environment for business people to become more effective presenters.  Participants are videotaped as they present.  They receive coaching from the instructor and feedback from peers throughout the workshop.

♦ Anticipate possible questions and prepare strategies to answer them.
