Full course description


Workshop Details

DATE & LOCATION: August 11, 2020, Zoom

TIME: 10:00AM-11:30AM


First impressions matter. When you capture your participants’ interest right away, they will listen to the rest of your presentation. This experiential workshop gives you strong, impactful techniques for starting your virtual or in-person presentations. You will arrive with a 1-3 sentence opening to a presentation you have recently given or will be giving soon.


At the end of this seminar, participants will be able to:

  • Understand 10 Presentation Opening Tools
  • Incorporate one presentation tool into their opening
  • Apply their in-session practice and feedback to a new opening
  • Increase confidence & credibility applying techniques shared

You’ll learn how to hook them. You’ll learn how to hold them.
