Ineffective Presentation Training Courses Are:

The Best Presentation Skills Workshops Are:

Theoretical. While it's best to ground the curriculum in cognitive science, your team deserves more than the "why" behind effective presentations. Practical. Every attendee should have the opportunity to workshop a real-life example of a high-stakes presentation.
Lofty. Why expose your team to presentation skills training they'll struggle to grasp? Down to Earth. Business presentation training should be grounded in application, not up in the clouds.
Therapy. Your team should attend this workshop if they need to improve their technical skills. If they need to be psychoanalyzed, there's probably a better way to spend a day. Interactive. While moderated by a great coach, your team should bring their real-world projects as content.
A Boondoggle. There are enough distractions from professional development. Devote time to improving your team's presentation skills, and work on your golf game later. A Bootcamp. You and your team should leave the workshop with improved skills beyond what you're working with today, and the ability to apply them to any important presentation.
