Encore! Elegant Skills for Powerful Presentations is a video-based learning laboratory. Our distinguished flagship presentation skills training program, which features our signature Line by Line Coaching process, is designed to address the specific needs of each individual so they receive the focus and attention they need to succeed.

Learning Outcomes

  • By the end of Encore! Elegant Skills for Powerful Presentations, participants will be able to:

  • Use The Connection Loop model to organize, prepare and practice a presentation.

  • Use a tested formula to analyze their audience so they understand how to create and maintain audience engagement throughout their presentation.

  • Understand their speaking strengths and challenges and improve their overall performance by using stronger delivery skills including physical presence, vocal resonance, and distinctive language.

  • Implement The DeFinis Navigator, our fail-safe planning method for organizing content that supports the speaker’s ability to stay on message and keeps their audience on track.

  • Effectively use various rhetorical devices including stories, examples, data, quotes, visuals, and other rich sources of support evidence to build more meaningful and relevant content.

Program Overview

We begin the program by introducing our core learning model, The Connection Loop, which provides a blueprint for developing, organizing, preparing, and practicing any presentation. Participants will learn the steps of creating a powerful presentation, as well as what it takes to keep their listeners engaged. Then we will assess each person’s current skill level so they have a benchmark on which to improve. And we will introduce concepts, skills, tools, and best practices to help each participant succeed.

But we know that theory is never enough to drive behavioral change so get ready for action! Using a business presentation topic relevant to their job or industry, participants will practice their new presentation skills and deliver sections of their presentation in front of the camera. During video-coaching sessions, they will receive feedback and coaching on each section of their presentation. Participants will be coached using our signature Line by Line Coaching process and receive immediate feedback from the instructor. The two-day presentation skills training program culminates with final presentations by each participant.
