ONE DAY HANDS-ON COURSE
Presentation & Speaking Skills for Dentistry
FRIDAY 26th JULY 2019
KINGS CROSS/ST PANCRAS, CENTRAL LONDON
The demand for good speakers at all levels is at an all time high. Whether you are a first time speaker that has been invited to present to a small study group, or a seasoned professional who has been asked to present to a large audience in a foreign country, there is always anxiety, and a willingness to do your best by yourself and your audience. However, nerves sometimes stop the most expert professionals from ever presenting, poor slide design can seriously undermine good content, and a lack of engagement can lead your audiences to turn to their mobile phones for amusement.
Ian will present numerous tips, tricks and ideas, with personal insights and stories about how to manage the nerves, how to perform to your best, how to handle difficult questions; and most importantly how to simplify and present your message so that you are invited back.
Some of the things that will be covered on the day include:
Dealing with anxiety before and during a presentation
How to stop saying “er” and “um”
Slide Design and avoiding “death by powerpoint”
TECHNOLOGY & TOOLS REQUIRED TO MAKE YOUR PRESENTATION RUN LIKE CLOCKWORK
Correct use of slide builds
How to present data so that people really understand it
Professional photographic techniques to make your images “wow” audiences
Active participation by giving a 5 minute presentation yourself (which will be videoed and then constructively critiqued)
Full courses notes, references will be given in a bound manual to take home
In addition to his busy teaching schedule and Private Clinic, Ian has taught presentation and speaking skills to invited audiences of Dentists, Oral Surgeons, & Dental Sales Representatives for a number of years.
