Event Description

You're a solid presenter, but you desire to be a dynamic communicator capable of consistently moving your audiences to action. This program shows you how to go beyond the basics of a good presentation by incorporating the wisdom of ancient Greece along with the latest insights from Hollywood and Madison Avenue.

  • Harness the strength of PowerPoint without being dominated by it.
