Course Description:

Within our industry, there are numerous powerful stories to tell, knowledge to share, and ideas to spread. And, like songs, presentations are a great way to help people connect with and activate ideas. However, it seems only a few dare to take center stage in comparison with the many who elect to stay in the audience. The aim of this presentation is to bring more people into the spotlight as the presenters share their combined knowledge about the process of pitching proposals, overcoming stage fright, and composing presentations aimed at striking the right chord with selection committees.
