WORKSHOP METHODOLOGY & SYLLABUS:
The two-day programme will be highly interactive encouraging the participants to contribute their own personal and corporate experiences. The facilitator will offer his expertise, as well as, a variety of learning techniques such as case studies, self-assessments, videos and interactive activities.
A comprehensive exploration of contemporary strategies in Communications that you must use to communicate more successfully and, thereby, not only accomplish your personal or company’s goals but also advance your entrepreneurial dreams but also your career. The most significant take-away is that you must not only STRUCTURE your presentations but also visually DESIGN them.
After exploring communication strategies in Day 1, the focus on Day 2 is putting into practice (“learn-by-doing”) the lessons from Day 1 and perfecting new DELIVERY strategies – including videoing a simulating presentation – which will dramatically help you improve both your body language and voice and, ultimately, heighten your self-confidence.
