Effective Presentations Class

Chicago Booth Alumni Club of Chicago

August 5, 2009: 6:00 PM - August 12, 2009: 9:00 PM

By special arrangement, the Chicago Booth Alumni Club has retained Zehren-Friedman Associates to present a two-evening Effective Presentations Class. In order to provide a highly individualized experience, registration is limited to just 8 participants. This is a highly concentrated, focused version of professional training that is typically offered to corporations at a cost of $1000 or more per participant. Register promptly, because this course will fill up quickly!! Participants will explore and learn: 1. How to structure persuasive (not just informative) presentations and to create powerful visuals that help rather than compete with the presenter. 2. Sharpen physical delivery skills to manage nervous energy, and enhance your image, impact, and persuasiveness. The course will be highly interactive and experiential, for optimal skill-development. All participants will complete two or three presentations and will receive constructive personal feedback (in the form of instructor critique, peer feedback, and video playback). Advance registration will be opened to CLUB MEMBERS ONLY at 12:00 Noon on Wednesday, July 15. Any remaining spaces will be released for general registration at 12:00 Noon on Monday, July 20. Non-members who wish to take advantage of this special opportunity are invited to join the club online prior to July 15.
