The Presentation Booster

More impact, less words

Delivering a message is about having impact. In this modular, online course you will increase your presence and impact through conscious communication by combining scripting, framing and casting.

Through scripting you will write a clear and concise story line, with a structure that strengthens the message that sticks. By framing  you will put the message into the right perspective, offering the audience the right ‘lens’ to look through. With casting you strengthen the message with adequate body language, to stay in contact with your audience.

With this course you will develop incremental skills, based on existing presentation experience. You will use these skills to help consider the impact you want to have on your audience, in terms of what you want people to think about and how you want them to feel.

Impact needs good preparation

At the end of this course you will know how to:

  • Script
    • Write a clear main message that is captured in one sentence
    • Choose a structure that strengthens the message
    • Saying more with fewer words: less is more
  • Frame
    • Offer your audience the right ‘lens’ to look through
    • Get your audience in the right ‘mood’
    • Use language that resonates
  • Cast
