Effective Presentations & Public Speaking 

Effective presentation and communication skills are one of the tools that staff members at all levels will find themselves called upon to use. Presenting findings and recommendations in large meetings or public settings is a key role senior staff members often find themselves asked to fulfill.  The ability to organize, summarize and convey information comfortably and effectively is a mixture of both preparation and technique. Participants will explore some of the techniques that help lead to effective presentations including how to summarize, prepare, and anticipate questions or discussion items.  Similarly, session attendees will also have the opportunity to both learn and apply some of the approaches covered during the session during interactive practice presentation exercises.


  • Learn about the difference between oral and written communication.
  • Be exposed to verbal and nonverbal tools you can employ to be a stronger communicator.
  • Learn about rehearsal and relaxation techniques.
