  • Learn how to engage an audience
  • Master the steps to becoming a Presentation Pro: growth, loving the stress, preparation, sharing a story/passion, self-assessment, show and tell, 10,000-foot start, three main issues, power of the pause, presentation cadence and more

Class participants will receive a copy of Matt Abrahamson’s book, Speaking Up without Freaking Out” before the class. Reading the book ahead of time will help jump-start your classroom learning.

In class we will review your current presentation style, PowerPoints, presentation notes and work on growth plans. Participants will work through a couple sample presentation projects.
