|No. of participants||max 6|
In this course participants are taught to give an audience-focused presentation, instead of a content- or screen-focused presentation. Based on the premise that in oral information transfer everything should be focused on the receiver, we will work on five aspects:
- content, expression, relation, appeal, and visual aids
All theory will be practiced in exercises and is obtainable on video. The teacher acts as a stage director and gives each participant personal stage directions, that will be applied to their own subject content. The training is intensive and sometimes confronting, but also a perfect chance to learn the tricks of the trade under professional guidance.
After the course, participants will be able to:
- structure the content in a way that the audience will remember it better;
- use their body, voice and hands more consciously;
- keep the attention of the audience more, by making the information that you deliver clearly audible, visible and tangibleestablish good contact with the audience;
- make effective slides and present them audience-focused, instead of screen-focused;
- deal with tension and present with confidence
The course will be taught by Karin Herrebout, Greep management- & organisatieontwikkeling. Karin has a background in theatre and professional storytelling, and is specialised in teaching presentation skills.
