Presentations remain one of the most important leadership communication skills. Whether it’s speaking to a few slides in a virtual team meeting, delivering a formal talk at a townhall, or sharing the organizational strategy with the Board, leaders at all levels must be able to seize the opportunities that presentations present. The ability to assess what that opportunity is and how best to execute on it is a skill that can and must be learned and practiced.

In Presenting as a Leader, your employees will learn what it takes to build and deliver presentations that inspire an audience to act. By bringing their own past presentations into the classroom and rebuilding them, learners have a chance to see where they typically go wrong and how to make a greater impact with their approach, their slides, their speaking notes, and their delivery style. Both the virtual and the in-person learning experiences are led by an expert Humphrey Group facilitator and provide extensive opportunities for peer discussion, feedback, and practice. Your learners will leave with a new mindset about what presentations can and should do, and greater confidence in their ability to inspire others.

This learning experience is part of the persuasion stream of leadership communication. You can learn more about our development philosophy here.
