Topic: Put your best foot forward in 2019 – Polish you Presentation Skills

How do you feel when you have to give a presentation, run a meeting or talk to the boss? Do your hands get sweaty, do you feel a lump in your throat, do you wish just for once those butterflies in your stomach would fly in formation? If you’ve ever felt this way then this meeting is for you.

This is not your average public speaking workshop. Randy Pazen will take you behind the scenes and share with you the secrets that professional speakers, trainers, magicians and comedians use to engage an audience and transfer learning. Come prepared to have fun and share your public speaking concerns and fears. As Project Managers, we are constantly briefing stakeholders at all levels. The concepts taught in this workshop will help you gain confidence presenting your information more professionally and with less stress.
