Own The Stage

- How to deliver powerful presentations, command the room as a speaker and captivate the audience


Let’s face it, as corporate executives we have all had our awkward moments doing pitches and presentations. Often times, what comes across in the room isn’t what we intended. Stage fright, weak content and non-compelling stories, poor delivery and timing are some of the signs of presentations gone horribly wrong.

Now, there’s a comprehensive course to fix all that and more! Learn the fine art of owning the stage, hitting on all the notes and moving from just delivering content to really telling a compelling story with a powerful presence. Become a power speaker who leaves a lasting impression on your audience with the ability to convey ideas and thoughts clearly and someone who will ‘own the stage.’

From content to presenting a captivating story, this course walks participants though the essential steps to building that perfect presentation and delivering it like a pro. It teaches how to engage the audience and communicate the essence of what is important and what will resonate with them. It covers stage presence and how to effectively work the room.

This is a highly interactive course with hands on presenting and video playback and analysis.

  3. Learn how to build your stage presence, how to engage the room and vary your pace and rhythm
  4. How to design a memorable talk that people remember long after it’s over

After the course participants will have a clear understanding of how to create and articulate a compelling presentation.

Participants will also learn how to create a presentation journey and tell authentic stories that engage the audience beyond the slide content.
