Event Info:


“You can have brilliant ideas but if you can’t get them across, your ideas won’t get you anywhere.” – Lee Iacocca, American automobile executive

“Credible ideas make people believe. Emotional ideas make people care. Stories make people act.” – Chip and Dan Heath, from the book, Made to Stick

To be a successful leader and change-maker, you need to communicate your ideas with others in a way that’s memorable and has impact. It doesn’t matter how great your ideas are; if you cannot get them across effectively, nobody will care about them.

How can you communicate your ideas effectively to others? How can you get the audience to remember your ideas? How can you engage and inspire them? In this half-day workshop, we will explore these questions and more.

In this hands-on workshop, you will learn:

  • How to communicate your ideas in ways that are more memorable and meaningful;

  • How to create presentation slides that are engaging and impactful; and

  • How to deliver your presentation like a professional.
