The World of BusinessIs

A Stage, and You’re On It(c)


Presenting before large audience groups can intimidate even the most seasoned of executives. Understandably, many take great pains to avoid such exposure or rise to the occasion with great reluctance.

What separates those who deliver presentations effectively from thos who do not? Some have yet to determine their own, specific styles of presenting. Others don’t know how to control their nervousness and stage fright. Still others pay scant attention to the need to thoroughly prepare their material and rehearse ahead of time.

By education and training, many executives are not equipped to achieve control in a presentation environment and need to learn this through a formal coaching program. The World of Business Is a Stage, and You’re On It, a presentation-skills workshop by Walshak Communications, Inc., provides a hands-on, risk-free environment in which execurtives receive the coaching they need to put into practice the skills they acquire during the workshop.
