You’ve probably been giving presentations all your life. They often start children early in primary school, having them get up in front of the class to present something small. Then, perhaps you presented a research paper or an academic study.
In adult life, presentations are no less ubiquitous. Sometimes they can be less formal, but, depending on the type of work that you are in, the odds could be high that you would have to present something.
No matter what stage of life you’re in, you’re likely to be asked to present in front of people, and this can be an intimidating prospect for many of us.
This course outlines the steps that you can take to make you feel comfortable and confident giving a presentation.
Firstly, we go through what makes a good presentation, so that you know what to aim for.
Next, we go over how to properly prepare for a presentation. We learn some do’s and don’ts, talk about engaging your audience and give some tips on how you can practise public speaking.
