Introduction

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 workshop is aimed precisely at overcoming such challenges. This 5 day workshop will help participants acquire proficiency in presentation and public speaking skills. They will develop skills in the analysis, planning, researching and writing of presentations. They will also learn to make a variety of presentations including briefs, speeches of introduction and pitches to clients.

“It has been an insightful 5 days here during the External Relations and Reputation Management programme at the School of Media and Communication, Pan-Atlantic University.

I would say that my expectations have truly been surpassed in many regards.I found it very satisfying and enlightening, the various modules that we participated in.

I think the coordinators of this programme have done a great job in identifying the various subjects that would make one a truly strong external communications person or a truly strong reputations management person. Looking at the modules before I started the programme, I really couldn’t identify how they were going to be as useful to me as they turned out to be. At the end of the day I think it all shows that there is a lot of skill, a lot of expertise on the part of the people that have put this together.

The facilitators have been excellent, we have had such wonderful sessions. They have been able to get people from the class to share from their various experiences. They have been able to also share from their own life experiences…– Olatomiwa Akande, External Communications Manager, Nigerian Bottling Company, Lagos, Nigeria.
