What makes this VIRTUAL Presentation & Public Speaking Skills course different?

This is a creatively structured virtual presentation and public speaking skills training course with the benefits of a live course:

  • Live instructor – Workshops are facilitated by a highly experienced live instructor – Kimberly VanLandingham (see details below)
  • International business focus – This course is particularly designed for international business, technical or sales people and includes international presenting tips.
  • Video conferencing – Courses use Zoom video conferencing, where you can see the instructor and the training materials.  (Training on Zoom is provided, if needed.)  We’ll use partnering exercises, breakout rooms, whiteboards, and more, so you’ll feel like we’re training together (while developing your skills with face-to-face and online presentations).
  • Small group – Only 4 attendees/group enable engagement and practice throughout the session
  • Action-oriented – You’ll learn by doing.  We use video examples, partnering exercises, and a presentation practice sessions to apply your new skills.
  • Flexible dates – Several dates are offered so (assuming availability) you join a later date to make up a module.
  • Save time and money – Save money but eliminating the need for travel.  You can use a non-confidential presentation project in course workshops, so you’ll learn while advancing your work.

This training course includes a course booklet with theory summaries and your project worksheets.
