Presentation Skills


Delivering exceptional presentations requires both content that connects to your audience and good technical presentation skills. This course will teach you how to understand your audience and create an engaging presentation that has impact.

This course is available either as a half-day online course with a focus on virtual presentation, or a one-day in-person course if you’re looking to improve your face-to-face presentation skills. Both classes have a maximum of 10 participants to allow for practical exercises, immediate feedback and coaching to improve technique.

Use body language, gestures, eye contact along with voice to engage your audience.

Find your authentic voice to build a persuasive and lasting connection.

Craft your messaging so that it hooks your audience and keeps them listening.

Is the Presentation Skills course right for you?

The half-day online course focuses on how to get the most out of presenting in the virtual environment and includes tips on how to set up your space and maintain engagement whether you’re presenting to a small meeting or a webinar event. Both courses highlight the difference between presenting in-person and online.

You will need to prepare a two-minute speech which will be recorded and played back within the session. For the in-person course, a camera operator is on hand to do the recording. For the in-person course, a camera operator is on hand to record and playback your short (1-2 minutes) speech.

Training will be delivered either by Jess Campanaro, Dani Torresan or Melissa Femia.

This course is only open to students aged 18 +.
