Communication Workshop II: Powerful Presentations
Saturday, October 5, 2013
10:00am - 12:30pm
SF State Downtown Campus, 835 Market Street, 5th floor

Communication workshops are a graduation requirement for Fall 2013 incoming graduate business students and musy be fulfilled within the first semester of study. Sessions are held at the SF State Downtown Campus, 5th floor. Incoming students will be automatically included on the roster for this session.

This workshop is open to graduate business students only.

Delivering presentations in small and large groups can be a daunting task. Yet, in most companies, what separates executives from managers is the ability to create and deliver powerful presentations. In this workshop, we explore what goes into presentations—from design to delivery. We also discover powerful techniques to conquer anxiety along the way.

These skills are covered in an experiential learning environment:

  • Content and presentation preparation
  • Body language of presentations
  • Creating ease and safety for audience
  • Visual Aids
  • Delivering and receiving feedback
  • Debriefing
  • Facilitation
