There are few things so moving as to hear an outstanding speaker presenting passionately. In the same breath, some would say there can be few things as intimidating as envisioning yourself being that speaker. Putting yourself up on stage and presenting to your leadership team or colleagues can often cause anxiety and stress that need not be there. All participants will actively create and deliver presentations including one that extensively used visuals such as Power Point. Select presentations are recorded and presented to participants for input and feedback.
