It may come as no surprise to learn that in a survey carried out amongst experienced, middle and senior executives, designed to determine the things that they feared most, public speaking came out as number one. What may come as a surprise is that in the same survey Death was eighth on the list! So on the basis of surveys findings most of us would rather die than stand up and present!
Whilst, that may be a little extreme, it is a fact that many people can become terrified at the prospect of having to stand up and make a presentation. It is also true that a poor presentation can have a negative and damaging effect on the issue the presentation sought to address. Not to mention the effect that such an experience will have on the individual undertaking the presentation.
This course is intended for anyone that is currently required to undertake presentations, or who may be required so to do in the future.
