Federation of State Boards of Physical Therapy hosts Fearless Presentations ® class in Washington, D.C.
Federation of State Boards of Physical Therapy decided it was time to sharpen presentation skills by hosting the Fearless Presentations® class on site in Washington, D.C. This was a lively group of 15 people with various levels of experience delivering presentations.
In this particular class, there were a couple of people who were very nervous about getting up in front of their peers to present. Public speaking fear is very common and is listed as one of the top five fears of most Americans by the Book of Lists. In this public speaking class, participants are given a number of tools to work with to overcome this fear and, as a result, feel better about their presentations. For the more seasoned presenters, a number of techniques are covered to provide ways to keep presentations interesting for both the presenter and the audience. By getting up repeatedly in front of the group to practice, these tools become ingrained in a very short amount of time. Techniques such as adding stories, analogies, quotes, and flip chart drawings are also covered in the class.
“The training was GREAT, thanks – I found out presentations could be enjoyable with the right tools, some forethought… and a good story.” Maribeth Decker, Federation of State Boards of Physical Therapy
If you feel that presentations could be better at your organization, the Fearless Presentations® class is a great way to make participants feel more confident about their abilities, and leave audience members associating your company with outstanding presentation skills. Classes are offered in Washington D.C. and throughout the U.S.
