Introduction :

One of the prime requisites for oil and gas professionals is to deliver presentations in a precise, concise, and well-designed away as possible. Some industry technical professionals are naturally gifted designers/ speakers/ presenters; others are not.

This course is for individuals who are required, as part of their jobs, to deliver presentations in-house or in public, and who wish to perfect the art and craft of dynamic presentation-making.

To do so, participants will be involved in a full array of hands-on class exercises to improve presentation-making skills, vocal techniques, social interaction skills, visual aid preparation, etc. Attendees will deliver two presentations in class, both of which will be videotaped to measure improvement.
