***Under construction***

We are bringing a refresh to many of the Professional Development course offerings in 2023. 

The course content listed below may change to reflect an updated program.

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 practical activities to further develop skills.
