As a note: This class is heavily subsidized by King County as a service to you. The goal is to increase everyone's ability to share information and improve communications with all audiences. It is two parts and that is important. If you cant attend the second session, wait for a future class. This class is powerful is because you learn, then apply, learn, then apply.
Do you speak at conferences, public meetings, or other events where you need to convey a specific message?
Have you ever felt like you didnt quite hit the mark by the lackluster reactions of your audience members?
Would you like to authentically engage people and help them to consider a different point of view?
This two-day class features best practices for designing presentations and is especially geared towards scientists and professionals who work for local and state agencies. In this class, you will learn how to:
Transform the way you do PowerPoint;
Use visuals in a way that has impact;
Make your message memorable;
Tell a compelling story;
Create rapport with your audience;
Present data in an accessible way;
Drill down to your most important message.
The classes are two weeks apart. You will develop a short presentation to present to the class on your second day (either Oct 1 or 2). You will immediately apply what you've learned and to receive positive coaching and feedback.
Day One, each student works on elements of their Day Two presentation. You get one-on-one attention on the first day.

The presentation tips made me rethink presentations as fun, rather than something I dread and have to get through.
