Description:
Do you know what most people fear more than being audited? Do you know what most people fear even more than their own death? The answer is speaking in front of other people! Even the most cool, collected, and technologically savvy person can become a complete wreck if they have to get up in front of other people. And that’s just in front of people they know!
Skilled presenters have two unique qualities: the appropriate skills and personal confidence. The skill, like most things in life, comes easier the more you practice. Once you know you have the skill, the confidence comes from knowing that you can convey your message while staying comfortable and in control. This course will teach you the essentials of being a great presenter and how you can apply those skills using the mainstay of the presentation world: Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007.
