Making presentations is usually a herculean task for many people. Reactions to the prospect of making a presentation could range from sheer fear through anxiety attacks to even a partial loss of voice. In one way or another, almost every one of us will be involved in presentation and public speaking so we need to be prepared. In fact, employers consistently rank public speaking and related communication skills as one of the top skills they look for in employees. Regardless of the cost, some people prefer to avoid presentations completely rather than face up to what they see as a daunting challenge. The Creative Presentation and Public Speaking seminar is aimed precisely at overcoming such challenges.
