Effective Communication and Presentation Skills Training

In today’s ever shrinking and competitive world effective communication and presentation skills are in high demand.

Art of Speaking for Success is about providing the tools and support you need when you’re speaking and presenting to others. Big groups, small groups, one on one: management, team members, field crew, clients, councils, business or community groups, it’s about becoming a more powerful and effective communicator.

At its simplest, effective communication is about making a connection. If your message isn’t connecting with your audience, if it’s not being heard, understood and implemented in some way, it’s going nowhere.

In her workshop and coaching sessions, Dorothea Hendriks focuses on your speaking and presentation skills, shows you what you can to grab attention, how to make a genuine connection with your audience and build support for your ideas. It’s about having a presence and making an impact.
