Speaking for Change – Introducing new strategies and ideas

Below are the details of a speaking course that I have developed designed to help leaders to present clearly and concisely to their workforce regarding new strategies and ways of working. It covers all the elements of presenting for change, including handling Q&A sessions!


Upon completing this course, you will be able to write and deliver talks to your workforce that introduce new ideas and concepts in a positive manner. You will understand how to present your ideas in a persuasive and memorable way, overcoming audience objections. You will understand strategies for dealing with question and answer sessions. For this course it is assumed that you have at least a foundation level understanding of presentation skills and delivery techniques.
