It goes without saying that businesses need employees who project confidence, clarity, and professional presence. Unfortunately, many intellectually and technically talented individuals have little training in basic presentation skills. This short seminar introduces the fundamentals of speaking well to entrepreneurs, upper level executives, managers, new hires, and others who need to know effective strategies for communicating information.

    * Structuring a clear message
    * Awareness of physical and vocal qualities
    * Providing constructive feedback
