Presenting with Confidence (eBook only)
Here's what you'll teach in Presenting with Confidence:
A 38-page Course Book that covers the following:
Introduction - Why You Can’t Ignore Your Presentation Skills
You'll start the course by discussing why public speaking fears are so common, but also why avoiding presentations can hurt a business. You'll reassure your students that anyone can learn to be a great public speaker and presenter and that they'll be well on their way by the end of the course.
Module 1 - Apply Best Practices to Elevate Your Public Speaking
Next, you’ll show them the best practices and tips that will take their presentation skills to a higher level, no matter what type of speaking they need to do. These techniques are priceless for all students, small business owners, and entrepreneurs, whether they're just getting started or looking to brush up their skills.
Module 2 - Craft Your Elevator Speech
A small business owner or entrepreneur should be able to quickly and easily describe their business, whether it’s during a formal presentation or in a brief encounter. In Module 3, you’ll explain the keys to creating the short ‘speech’ they can present at any time to entice curiosity about who they are and what they do.
Module 3 - Build Your Engaging Presentation
Presenting your own point of view on a topic is one of the most common types of presentations you can give to expand your reputation and credibility. So, in Module 4, you’ll show your students how to create and deliver engaging presentations which build a compelling case in support of their own ideas - whether it's in a TED Talk environment, a conference session, as a guest speaker, or even a DECA or FBLA competition.
Module 4 - Create Your Persuasive Sales Presentation
If your students do any type of sales, whether it’s to small groups or individuals, they'll come to a point where they need to deliver a formal presentation of their proposed solution, explaining why their listener should purchase it. In Module 5, you’ll walk them through a process for planning, creating, and delivering a compelling sales presentation that will maximize conversions from prospect to customer.
Conclusion and Next Steps
By this point, you’ve helped your students learn the key skills for delivering a variety of engaging presentations and they've even practiced a few. In the concluding module, you’ll spend time reviewing what they learned and having them lay out their next steps. You’ll have them schedule time to practice and direct them to start finding opportunities to use their newfound presentation skills.
