Presentation Skills (TD2384)

Wed, 29 May 2024 1:30 PM - 4:00 PM

Location: Wine-Price Building

Session: 2 of 2

Description: The fear of public speaking, or glossophobia, is the most common phobia reported – ranking ahead of spiders, death, and even heights! In fact, research shows that glossophobia may affect up to 75% of the population. 

But there is hope.  

And hope comes in the form of practice. 

In this 2-part workshop, we will first discuss the best practices of giving effective presentations. Then... take a deep breath... you will have the opportunity to put this new knowledge into practice by giving a short presentation to the other attendees. 

Rest assured, the crowd will be small, and the snacks will be plentiful - all in an effort to create a safe, supportive environment for you to practice overcoming a fear that is known to many. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the brain science behind the fear of public speaking.  
  • Apply presentation best practices. 
  • Practice presentation skills.  

Facilitated by: Director, Talent Development and Andrea Kiser, Supervisor of Consulting Services
