Perfect Your Presentation Skills with HP LIFE’s New Effective Presentations Course

1 March 2023

HP LIFE’s new Effective Presentations course simplifies the art of presenting with a masterclass in how to develop, practice for, and deliver impactful presentations that get the presenter’s message across.

Course overview

Effective Presentations gives learners the skills to create and deliver persuasive presentations that express their messages clearly and are targeted to their audience.

As they work their way through the course, they will learn about three different types of presentation and the information they need to include to persuade their audience to take action. They will be inspired by business mentor, Kenya George, who shares her real-life advice to help them craft effective presentations including the importance of a goal, why a call to action is key, and how to use storytelling to create impact. Her best-practice tips for public speaking will give them the confidence to deliver their presentation with flair.

Practical exercises enable learners to test their new knowledge as they develop a slide for HP LIFE entrepreneur, Frank, to include in his pitch to secure funding for his solar power business. Additional course resources provide supplementary learning opportunities enabling them to consolidate their knowledge and fine-tune their new skills.

Enroll in Effective Presentations now to learn how to:

  • Determine what information in a presentation is most relevant to a specific audience.
  • Create effective and well-designed slide presentations to be given remotely or in person.
