According to popular statistics, close to 40% of people fear public speaking. They stutter, stammer or are unable to convey what they want to say. This may have an adverse impact on their work, and they may not be able to grab the attention of the crowd. Business leaders are often expected to present new ideas to staff, clients, partners, or even the public. Lots of money and pressure can be riding on these presentations. Therefore, it is up to the company to select someone who has strong presentation skills to take the lead on these kinds of projects. Making a good first impression can have a profound impact on the success or failure of a business. In this session, participants will be expected to give a 3-minute presentation and receive valuable feedback based on a set of criteria.
