The Enterprise Center at Salem State University

This course provides both techniques and practice in preparing, organizing, and delivering effective oral presentations. Participants will learn skillful delivery after designing the most appropriate training materials for their audience. Organizing thoughts in a logical and concise manner with a systematic design and structure of your content is key to successful delivery.  We will review which delivery modality to use when: talking head, powerpoint, small groups, manuals, handouts, video, etc. The course explores body language; the use of voice volume, pitch, rate, and quality as assets to speaking and a segment on how to use technology seamlessly for the greatest punch. Participants are required to bring a presentation topic; regardless of the stage of the process of presentation design.  Participants will learn techniques during the morning segment and practice your presentation during the afternoon segment of the workshop.
