Presenting With Passion - Interactive

Updated May 05, 2020

Making a boring presentation is stressful. Inspiring others with your words is fun. This interactive course is designed to help anyone improve their presentation skills, and become a more effective and engaging speaker who can enthuse and impress audiences, and pitch their own ideas with ease.

Carol is taking the Cutting Edge team through a training session on overcoming fear and changing their presentations from BLAND to GRAND. Carol takes the opportunity to tell Serena she is being long winded, the L in BLAND. Carol invites each team member to do a presentation on a ‘surprise’ item, then explains in a very direct way how each has demonstrated aspects of BLAND: Alex is Avoiding engagement with no eye contact; Sam with stiff Neutral body language; Casey who Disregards the cues of her audience, and finally Michael who is Boring, presenting in a monotone with no enthusiasm. Carol asks Steve to make a short enthusiastic presentation showing how you can change from BLAND to GRAND in a few easy steps and demonstrating the importance of body language. Steve is the only one to make a GRAND presentation using great body language and tone.
