Sink or swim' is an appropriate saying when asked to do a presentation on short notice. You can either freak out and escalate your stress level or learn to take a planned approach and put yourself in the driver's seat. By taking Off-the-Cuff presentations you will learn to take control and be self-assured by focusing your message, adding conviction and spontaneity. This one-day workshop is ideal for individuals who are required to 'think on their feet' and have a moderate amount of experience giving presentations.

  • Use brain smart principles to channel your focus
  • Apply techniques to immediately lower your stress response
  • Learn a variety of impromptu presentation methods following a ‘planning’ three-step rule
  • Improvise and present to accurately portray your message
  • Practice, practice and more practice (with feedback).
  • Develop a Personal Development Plan to increase your Impromptu speaking effectiveness.
