Workshop: Presentation Skills: Think Like an Actor

July 1, 2016  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

It’s conference season, and you’ve once again been asked to share your expertise by giving a breakout session at a regional, national or international conference. The thought makes you both smile and shiver. The pressure to deliver a presentation to a group of your professional colleagues that is clear, confident and memorable is undeniable.

This interactive, two-hour seminar will give you the tools you need to prepare and deliver an effective, impactful, persuasive presentation — a presentation that you will enjoy giving (and your audience will enjoy receiving). Eleni Kelakos will share theater-based presentation techniques that will help ignite what she calls your transformational presence, so you can pitch or present fearlessly, authentically and persuasively, all while under pressure and scrutiny.

Presented by Eleni Kelakos, CTO (Chief Transformational Officer), The Eleni Group
