Take control of the room

Don't let the room sabotage your performance! Simple steps to survive the first 5 minutes

Does starting up a presentation in front of an audience leave you a quivering wreck?

Many people say that the worst part is the first few minutes. It's one thing if the technology starts up without a blip and the audience is looking at you with rapt attention AND you remember exactly what it was you were going to say. But, as we all know, this is not always the case.

This course will help you with simple practical ways to handle the situation. Learn how to reduce technical hiccups and get your first slide up with a minimum of delay. Position yourself strategically in the room, whatever the space looks like, and set up the situation so it works for you.

These tips will help you not only survive the first nervous minutes, but you will start strong and in command, with the full attention of your audience.

This course includes one-on-one coaching!

Ask questions as you go. Send a mail or Skype or by any other method. You can buy even longer coaching sessions if you need help all the way through the process from planning to speaking.
