Communication is not what you say - it is how listeners understand it. They only have one chance to hear your talk and can't "re-read" when they get confused. Therefore, it is important to think not only about what you want to say but also how to say it.
The course delivers the theoretical background for successful presentations at national and international conferences or meetings and in front of smaller groups of people by showing the key principles. It also gives you substantial support to achieve your goals by practising presentations. There will be a strong focus on individual feedback. The aim of this course is to gain more confidence when presenting in English.
The following topics will be covered:,- Designing a plan of the presentations' preparation,- Appreciating the importance of structure,- Identifying helpful and unhelpful body language,- Demonstrating the use of a variety of visual aids including multi-media technology,- Considering intercultural aspects for international audiences,- Delivering effective presentations.
The course is designed for all people who frequently or occasionally deliver presentations and want to improve their performance.
