Webinar | Be a powerful presenter

Do you want your conservation work to have broader impact?  Do people need to act or change their behaviour to ensure the success of your project? Do you need to talk to the public to engage, inform and make things happen?  Do you want to share your research, with authority, to your peers?

Then you need to be a Powerful Presenter!

As Lee Iacocca, former CEO Chrysler said, “You can have brilliant ideas, but if you can’t get them across, your ideas won’t get you anywhere.”

Don’t let your career development and conservation efforts be hindered by not knowing how to get your messages across when presenting – whether that be in-person, online, live, recorded, to a small local audience or at a big global conference.

Saving the planet depends on clear, confident, compelling communication.

Join us for a FREE webinar with Tara Phillips, Presentation and Communication skills coach and trainer to learn how to be a powerful presenter.

During this webinar you’ll learn:

  • The secret of ingredients of presentations that influence and persuade
  • The do’s and don’ts of crafting a compelling story
  • How to avoid ‘death by powerpoint’
  • Why and how you must connect and engage with a crowd
  • How to leave your audience with a message that sticks
