Leuven.Inc Workshop 'Presentation skills'

Tired of PowerPoint presentations with busy slides, complicated graphs and speakers simply reading what's on their slides?
How do you perform when speaking in public? Does your message stick? Do you achieve your aims? How effective are your visuals? Do you establish good contact with your audience? Do you enjoy speaking in public?

Passing information in a clear way is not an easy task. What matters is not only the content of your message but also your way of delivering it. The success of your presentation depends on that elusive set of qualities referred to as presentation skills: the way you speak, the structure of your presentation, your empathy, storytelling, visuals... Each of these components can be improved by training.

So what will you learn during this training?

  • the basic skills of empathic speaking: eye contact, pausing, the correct way of breathing, stage acting and the use of your hands
  • how to read your audience, then build and maintain a rapport with it
  • how to deal with stress
  • the characteristics of good intonation, the use of tempo, pausing and timing
  • the difference between a good slide and a bad one
  • how to perform when using slides

About the training
