One of these sessions is recorded and feedback will be offered. Main objectives are:

Who Should Attend?

Those who would like to gain confidence when designing and delivering a presentation and would like to learn a process that can be applied for all future presentations.


Participants will work on a presentation throughout the day and will then deliver that presentation at the end of the day.
