Presentations Skills Workshop

About the workshop:

Speaking in front of people is often the source of anxiety for many. The best way to alleviate that stress is to know what is necessary to hold a successful workshop that will interest and inform the participant. This workshop hopes to give you those presentation skills. The topics covered will discuss knowing the audience you are presenting to, developing a plan, structuring a presentation, and giving good delivery including your voice, rapport with the audience, and body language. These ideas will be reviewed, discussed, and, if there are any brave audience members, practiced in an educational environment where the participants do just that . . . participate!

About the speaker:

He has been living in Tripoli as an English Language Fellow through Georgetown University and the US State Department and is splitting his time between lecturing MA in Applied Linguistics students at the Academy of Graduate Studies and holding training workshops around Libya.
