How to Facilitate a Presentation and not Lose your Audience
If you have ever been on the receiving end on an excruciatingly boring presentation… or you have personally had the misfortune of being scheduled to present immediately after a rather large meal or at the conclusion of a very long day, you will better understand the importance of effective facilitation skills.
This class is designed to offer tools and techniques on:
Achieving presentation objectives and outcomes
Establishing a collaborative learning community
Making a difference in your speaking style and technique
Effectively using humor in your sessions
Dealing with disruptions
Planning the facilitators process
Your personal objective as a facilitator is to have your audience completely involved from introduction to conclusion, while having them walk away with take-a-ways that will benefit their future needs.
