Communication, Presence & Impact

Programme Overview & Summary

This is a practical and fast-paced course, working with you on a real piece of communication that you’d like to improve (or prepare). You will have a chance to benchmark your presentation skills against the three qualities most likely to persuade your audience: the shape and style of your con- tent, your body language and your tone.
