Do you speak at conferences, public meetings, or other events where you need to convey a specific message? Have you ever felt like you didn’t quite hit the mark by the lackluster reactions of your audience members? Would you like to authentically engage people and help them to consider a different point of view?
This two-day training class (Oct 12 & 26) features best practices for presenting data and is especially geared towards scientists and professionals who work for local and state agencies.
In this class, you will learn how to:
- Use visuals in a way that has impact;
- Make your message memorable;
- Tell a compelling story;
- Create rapport with your audience;
- Present data in an accessible way;
- Drill down to your most important message;
- Transform the way you do PowerPoint.
The classes will be held two weeks apart. In between, you will develop a short presentation to present to the class on Day Two. This is an opportunity for you to immediately apply what you've learned and to receive positive coaching and feedback.
