POWERFUL PRESENTATION SKILLS FOR WOMENFri 30 November 2018Virginia Haussegger AM, Adjunct ProfessorUniversity of Canberra
THIS COURSE IS INTENDED FOR WOMEN IN SENIOR EXECUTIVE ROLES IN GOVERNMENT, BUSINESS AND NON-PROFIT ORGANISATIONS.
Women are naturally good communicators. They have a wide range of communication tools at their disposal and an innate ability to adapt their presentation style to suit a diversity of audience. However, women’s voices are not heard in the same way men’s voice are heard and understood.
There is now a growing body of research that confirms men not only speak more than women, they are also interrupted less. But perhaps more importantly, women are not called upon as frequently as men to present their ideas, offer an opinion, showcase their expertise, or act as spokesperson. The reasons are complex and reflect a broad cultural and gender bias which serves to discourage women from stepping up and speaking out. We intend to help change that.
This course will equip women with powerful presentation and media communication skills. Delivered in an energetic sessions, participants will learn through hands on experience and feedback to tackle any communication challenge, whether its fronting the media, speaking on a panel, or delivering a keynote. A thorough understanding of communication fundamentals will enhance each participant’s presentation confidence, authority, influence and style.
METHOD OF DELIVERY: The Master class will be conducted in an interactive, seminar style, with some group work on problem solving exercises and analysis of case studies. It will include coaching and constructive feedback.
