Virtual Workshop - Tuesday, December 5, 2023 at 3:00 p.m. EST

How to Make Presenting Easy and Effective, Even at the Last Minute!

The SPC and the Society of Women Environmental Professionals (SWEP) are partnering to bring you this workshop.

This workshop will show you how to create a clear and powerful presentation even if you don’t have much time to prepare. The tools and techniques covered will simplify the speech creation process and allow you to prioritize what’s important.

The process for creating a speech is the same, whether you have 1 month or 1 hour! Once you understand it, you will be able to use it effectively, no matter how much time you have.

Attend this workshop to learn:

    • The 5 stages to creating a presentation and what to focus on first
    • 3 key ideas to eliminate fear and present with confidence
    • The essential tool for creating and delivering any presentation
    • Important dos and don’ts of slides
    • The most powerful way to connect with your audience

By the end of this session, you will know how to make your presentations clearer and more compelling. This will benefit both your audiences (who will understand and remember more) and you (because you will find presenting much easier).
