#Go-getter | Convincing Presentation Skills

You’re working hard to put yourself on the map and you’re developing into a true professional in the field. Or at least, that’s what you would like. The workshops within the theme # the go-getter will give you the skills to develop yourself further as a creative professional.

The training course Convincing Presentation Skills consists of five sessions on a Tuesday evening. This training course is an exclusive training course, which means you are invited to participate in all five sessions in a small, fixed group. Sign up quickly, because there are limited places available.

What will you learn during these evenings?
How do you convince your audience with your story? There’s more to a good presentation than just pretty PowerPoint slides, whether you are pitching your idea in 11 seconds or need to hold a high-level discussion. If you are able to use your enthusiasm and your unique qualities in the right way, your audience will listen to you. After this training course, you will approach every presentation full of confidence. You will be given useful tools for communicating your story in a convincing way.
