We are judged every day by our ability to communicate. Dynamic, purposeful communicators seem to be able to gather their thoughts with ease. How can you make sure your ideas and insights come across in a way that gets listeners to pay attention and expands your power to persuade? In this dynamic workshop you'll learn the three most important skills you need right now to speak effectively to large or small groups. You will gain hands-on experience presenting your ideas clearly, concisely, and persuasively. Topics include:

* PRESENCE: Immediately convey credibility and competence in any situation through eye contact, movement, gestures, facial expression, and vocal energy.
* ORGANIZATION: Reduce the stress of preparing a presentation by using a three-step framework to efficiently plan your talk.
* THINKING ON YOUR FEET: Make a significant contribution in meetings, or respond to questions, with skill and tact. Learn and practice a proven method for gathering your thoughts quickly and speaking up without becoming defensive or saying too much.
