Do you deliver presentations at conferences, meetings, events or for learning programs? Would you like to sharpen your skills and elevate your presentation skills to a commanding and cutting-edge level?


This online, blended-learning course will equip you with the tools needed to deliver with confidence. You'll learn how to strengthen your presence, engage an audience, communicate effectively, structure content to suit a purpose, and increase your persuasiveness.


During this highly interactive course you’ll have ample opportunities to practice as we work through everything from warming up and preparation, voice and body control, gestures and visuals, to reading an audience, and conveying authority and power.

Whether you're already comfortable in the front of a room, or you're moving into delivering higher-stakes presentations, where refined and developed skills is a must, this course will help conquer a new-found level.
Please note: Presentation Skills Virtual is a blended-learning course, and is comprised of self-paced content sent to the learners one week prior to the live sessions, followed by 2 LIVE ONLINE virtual classroom modules (Sessions 2 & 3), and finally Session 4, which rounds out the course with a LIVE ONLINE interactive webinar where all learners will meet with the course facilitator 2 weeks after Session 3 finishes.
