Professional Development Workshop

Presentation Advantage

Even the most experienced professionals can lack effective presentation skills. They fail to prepare, are fearful in front of people, have poorly organized thoughts, and lack the confidence to engage and persuade an inattentive audience. This Franklin Covey workshop will provide you with the know-how to deliver dynamic, compelling, and truly effective presentations time and again.


Presentation Advantage, helps participants discover how to:

  • identify the presentation objectives, audience needs, and expectations
  • use the FC “Presentation Planner” tool
  • leverage powerful business communication and persuasion strategies
  • use the “Visual Advantage” guidebook, learning how to use visuals effectively
  • prepare effective presentation notes, handle questions, and practice to perfection.

Participants will boost presentation performance with training, enabling them to motivate teams, gain buy-in, and improve results.

Date: October 30, 2019
