Conversational Presenting 101

Conversational Presenting is useful in public speaking. More specifically, it is excellent for communicating qualitative research, as well as general information, on various topics during meetings or conferences, because it allows for the presenter to be more fluent.

In "Conversational Presenting 101," participants will learn different strategies to enhance their personal presenting styles for increased engagement and participant satisfaction. Target Audience: Employees looking to converse comfortably in front of an audience.

If so, there's a strong possibility that you have fallen into the "Procrastination Trap."
