Overview

Every hour of every day in every country where business is conducted the same scene plays out: dozens of well-paid people sitting in a conference room being bored senseless. Death by a thousand slides. This mind numbing, soul crushing, grotesquely expensive experience ends here. James Whittaker reveals the secrets to conceiving, building and delivering a great presentation. Whatever your level of presentation skills, this course offers to hone them. You’ll learn how to build a compelling story from the ground up. You’ll be given advice on how to remember and recall that story as you deliver it. You’ll be taught how to use oratory and literary instruments to make the story come alive for your audience.

This is a 3-hour course with a 15 minute break in the middle.
