Presentation Skills - Early Career Professionals

Engineering context

Whether communicating with technical or non-technical audiences, engineers are required to speak confidently and engage with people in workshops, client briefs, team meetings and seminars.

This half-day workshop will provide participants with practical tools and techniques to present confidently to all types of audiences including:

  • preparing and structuring a clear presentation,
  • presenting with confidence, presence, vocal power and speech clarity,
  • using appropriate verbal and non-verbal language to communicate messages, and
  • adjusting a presentation to reflect group size, venue, and medium of communication.

Participants will prepare an elevator pitch, a presentation plan and some PowerPoint slides through a pre-workshop online module. During the workshop participants will deliver their elevator pitch and receive direct feedback from the facilitator to develop practical performance skills that can be applied to a presentation. Feedback will also be given on participants presentation plans and PowerPoint slides.
