With the wealth of information that people are subjected to today, the effective transfer and ‘cut through’ to those we wish to reach is a critical skill in business. The New Horizons’ Effective Presentations Program examines the formalised area of information transfer – the presentation. From understanding the audience, through to design and delivery, this program establishes the steps to creating effective presentations. It provides techniques to heighten your engagement and effectiveness with your audience during delivery and in question and answer time.

Participants will learn how to determine realistic presentation objectives, analyse the audience, use supporting materials effectively, organise a presentation clearly, and successfully incorporate visual aids. Program activities also cover reducing the fear of speaking, remaining calm, appearing relaxed, and improving the delivery of your presentation. Finally, participants learn how to assess the audience members and answer their questions, organise a persuasive presentation, and use reasoning and emotional appeals to persuade an audience.
