This 1 day local government course is designed to provide government employees with the skills to become more effective presenters of information in small settings, workplace meetings, and large forums.  The focus is upon three specific types of presentations: spontaneous, extemporaneous, and prepared-informative presentations.  The students in this class will learn by doing, receiving immediate feedback, as well as being provided with a model to self-evaluate as they use the techniques taught in this course back at their day-to-day jobs serving the public. 

Students will learn how to use non-verbal communication to enhance the delivery of their message, how to plan and prepare for a presentation, and how to objectively evaluate their presentations in order to work toward constant improvement.   This course is beneficial to any employee who might present information to the public, other government employees, or elected officials.  The skills provided in this course are vital to professional development and advancement.
