Effective Presentation Skills

Through class discussions and in-class presentations, trainees will enhance their fluency skills and learn how to make effective presentations that inform, persuade and influence a variety of audiences, including peers, senior management, customers and clients. Trainees will gain confidence and build communication strategies for delivering presentations that make an impact.

Topics will include current business issues, as well as, business etiquette, networking and leadership and management styles. Pronunciation, intonation and accent reduction are addressed.

Trainees will deliver short presentations during class for self, peer and instructor evaluation. Presentations will be videotaped in class for individual review and analysis.

We offer this course at our New York City, Midtown, and Westchester locations. The Effective Presentation Skills class will consist of seven meetings on Mondays from 6pm – 9pm.
