Workshop “How to Ensure an Effective Presentation Delivery”
Voice is a unique instrument that we possess. It needs care and fine-tuning before the performance as well as sophisticated control during the performance to communicate ideas clearly and with impact. The workshop will teach you how to use volume, pitch, rate, pauses, and inflection meaningfully to orchestrate a presentation delivery to the presenter's best advantage. We will focus on most effective rapport-building and other rhetorical techniques to make your public speech powerful and memorable. You will have a chance to test the skills in practice.
