Practical Ideas and Strategies

All of us in education spend the majority of our time communicating our ideas, plans, and thoughts to others. Whether we are leading teams or staff meetings, working with students, teachers, and parents, making presentations to colleagues or to the PTA or board of directors, or even representing our school and district at various functions, each of us is asked to make presentations. Yet few of us have ever received the training to do this as effectively as we could.

Have you ever watched a skillful presenter and wished you had the same confidence, poise and ability to express your point of view? In this highly engaging, practical seminar, Deborah Estes will share the techniques you need to make powerful presentations – learned techniques that will make a significant difference in your ability to persuade, explain and communicate with all the audiences you encounter.

Throughout this active, fun and fast‑paced day, Deborah will show you exactly what is needed to prepare and deliver presentations to a wide variety of audiences in many different settings, whether it be a small familiar group of colleagues or an important speech you are making to a large audience.

You will leave this energizing seminar feeling confident, revitalized and eager to use the critical skills you’ve learned for making each of your presentations really count!

A Message From Your Seminar Leader

Dear Colleague:

Given the nature of what we all do in education, regardless of what roles we play, we spend a great deal of time communicating with others. And how often have each of us said to ourselves that we’d like to do an even more effective job of presenting our ideas, plans, proposals, and opinions to others? If you’ve ever thought about making your presentations more dynamic, getting people fully involved, or doing an even more effective job of making the points you want to make, this seminar is for you!

Contrary to what many people think, those individuals who are most effective in listening, persuading, leading, and inspiring others have developed these skills over time – skills which can be learned. It is my pleasure to be able to share the highly effective strategies you can use to make each presentation you make, from quick, impromptu small group meetings to formal, planned presentations as impressive and inspiring as you want them to be.

During our fast‑paced day together I will give you a wealth of techniques used by “experts” to make your presentations as succinct, persuasive and effective as possible. From practical, proven ways to connect with your audience to techniques that keep people listening and actively involved, you will be given the tips, tools and critical steps for designing and delivering dynamic presentations.

There are three constants that I believe are necessary for real learning to take place and I guarantee you’ll see them during this seminar: active participation, practical strategies you can easily incorporate into your next presentation, and serious fun!

When you leave I want you to have the most effective tools in your presentation toolbox that can easily be taken out and used the very next time you present. I’d like to personally invite you to attend this seminar and unlock the keys to making a significant difference in your ability to persuade, explain and communicate with every audience you encounter.

I look forward to having you join me for this exciting, worthwhile and highly practical day.

Sincerely,
Deborah Estes

P.S. You’ll leave this seminar inspired, enthusiastic and ready to use these highly practical tips and techniques to enhance every presentation you make.
