Accelerate! Advanced Presentation Skills Training Program

3 Days |  8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.  |  8 Participants |  1 Facilitator

Today’s business leaders are expected to be effective spokespeople for their companies. Even though they give presentations on a regular basis and feel confident in their skills, continued skill training is vital to your organization’s long-term success. As business challenges emerge, leaders need to keep their speaking skills sharp so they can project confidence and communicate with greater strength and clarity.

Accelerate! Advanced Presentation Skills is a three-day program designed for eight participants. Day one starts with a full group half-day review of advanced presentation skills. During the afternoon the large group is divided into two small groups of four. While half of the group works with the coach, the other half works independently refining their content structure and messaging. There is also free time to work on business issues. Day two is devoted to intensive small group coaching. The morning of day three is focused on finalizing content and slide ware and refining performance skills in preparation for the final presentations, which are delivered to the large group.

Target Audience

Business leaders, including executives, vice presidents, senior directors, and senior managers.

Program Overview

We begin by introducing our core learning model, The Connection Loop. Participants will discover why their audience wants them to succeed, and they will be introduced to concepts, tools, and best practices to help them do so. We will explore the public speaking challenges they routinely face and they will learn reliable solutions for everyday communication success.

But theory is never enough to drive behavioral change. That’s why participants will practice their skills in small group coaching sessions. We will carefully analyze their skill strengths and development areas. Then, using our signature Line by Line Coaching process, they will receive immediate and specific feedback and coaching that is focused on their individual challenges. The proven DeFinis training method and the expert guidance of our professional coaches ensure that participants will experience immediate results. Everyone should expect to work hard, achieve steady improvement, and leave transformed.
