How effective was the last presentation you attended?  Was it interesting and engaging, or dull and dry?  An effective presentation can be both persuasive and informative, but unfortunately they are often missed opportunities.

This is your chance to enhance your presentation skills, and to make the most of these opportunities!

This series of workshops has been designed to develop your communication and presentation skills.  For six weeks participants will attend face to face workshops to discuss ideas and explore activities, and then access FLO for supplementary information.
