About the Training
Would you rather do taxes, go to the dentist, or get a song stuck in your head than conduct a presentation? Don’t worry; you aren’t alone.
The American Health Law Association (AHLA) has partnered with Baker Communications, Inc. (BCI) to launch the Exceptional Presentation class to help you overcome common presentation pitfalls and achieve your next level of excellence.
You achieve this by focusing your learning on three areas:
- Customizing your message using BCI’s EPIC Presentation Structure.
- Practice what you learn by applying techniques to real-world AHLA situations/presentations.
- Enhancing your presentation skills through self-evaluation and peer/facilitator feedback.
By the end of the workshop, you will have the skills you need to deliver an exceptional presentation.
What to Expect
We learn by doing. We get better and help others learn through feedback. Get ready to roll up your sleeves, be recorded, and become great! This class is highly interactive and allows you to practice presenting to your peers. During the class, you will create and deliver an abbreviated presentation, receive peer and facilitator feedback, and evaluate your own work.
To enhance your learning experience, participants will need to invest time to complete the Behavioral Style Assessment and collect “real-world” information. The goal is to have you think about some of the course’s key topics prior to the class and provide you with an opportunity to apply what you are learning directly to your real-life work. Participants are expected to:
- Complete the Behavioral Style Assessment
- Review your behavioral style assessment results and learn what makes you, you. Capture 3 things you want people to know about your style.
- Watch the short video about your style (< 3 mins). What stood out to you about the presenter’s presentation? How did they emphasize key points during the video?
- Collect and have ready for class:
- Select an upcoming presentation that you want to work on and practice with during class. Or as an alternative, select an earlier presentation that you would like to update or re-evaluate.
- Complete the Audience Assessment Worksheet for your selected presentation.
This highly interactive training is limited to 12 participants and open to AHLA members on a first come, first serve basis.
