Seminar "Presentation Skills"

One of our areas of specialty is to train our clients to prepare and deliver their presentations and public speeches in a more efficient and effective way. First, we introduce and work on presentation variables or dimensions. Based on these variables and dimensions, we have developed a feedback system. During the seminar, each participant gives 2-3 presentations and receives structured feedback on each presentations. This is one of the best methods to improve public speaking skills.


Our suggestion: 2 days for the start up session
1 day for a follow-up session after six months

We can also design a tailor-made seminar based on your needs.


8-10 participants
