Media Spokesperson/Presentation Skills Training

English

 

Being an effective spokesperson requires more than media response lines.  Making an effective presentation isn't just about having good looking slides.  Giving engaging speech isn't only about having a well written text.  In all instances, it is also about understanding what you want to achieve, your audiences and, above all, yourself. 

 

This course will help you to be engaged, and comfortable in front of the media or an in-person audience, without having to "put on an act."
