Level Up Your Presentation Skills!

On March 21, 2023

Level Up Your Presentation Skills in this 4-part workshop series! 

Leaders are often expected to present their message with confidence and clarity to staff, clients, partners, investors, and sometimes the public. If you are in a leadership position, you are working to develop yourself into a leadership position, or you just want to lay a good foundation for your future, communication skills are critical! 

In this workshop you will learn how to:

  • Tell a story that keeps your audience engaged

  • Develop a slide deck that supports your story and the message you want to communicate

  • Present your story with confidence

Join us for a workshop that goes beyond the slides, and helps you develop yourself and your career.

This is a workshop series. When you sign up, you get all 4 sessions. Sessions will be taught over Zoom and will include hands-on exercises and break out room discussions.
