Class Overview

Delivering Presentations with Purpose and Impact | Seattle Central College - Continuing Education

Delivering presentations effectively requires purpose, preparation and practice.

By clarifying the purpose of your presentation, you gain the information you need to design an impactful experience for your audience.

Whether you are presenting to a large group or small one, preparing for anticipated questions and concerns helps you to stay composed and on-track with any audience at any time.

With tools like PowerPoint and Prezi to enhance your presentation (not drive it), you keep your audience visually stimulated and engaged.
