which will be recorded for review by the participants. Participants will also evaluate each other and provide constructive feedback.

Participants learn how to:

  • Plan and prepare presentation
  • Reduce nervousness and fear
  • Gain rapport with the audience

  • Create a professional presence
  • Deliver with skill and confidence
