To develop the confidence, skills, and Identity of a successful and effective presenter

Building on the work of Robert Garmston and other master presenters, this two-day seminar will focus on the skills, structures, and identity that support skilled presenting. The purpose of the training is to develop the confidence and competence a presenter needs. The presenter’s moves will also transfer to facilitations that the individual is asked to lead. Using the metaphor container, the participants will use the Event Design Map to structure an upcoming presentation.
