So you’ve mastered presenting to get your message across effectively...

But what if we told you that there was no guarantee that this message would work across different cultures?

There are different aspects you have to take into consideration when preparing to address diverse audiences, such as how they want to be persuaded, the appropriate style of the language to use and how to gain professional credibility in their eyes.

In our interactive session, we will share tools and techniques that will allow you to adapt your content and delivery style to the different needs and expectations of the diverse teams in the modern workplace. 

You will find out how to:

• Analyse your audience; • Structure your presentation in an easy-to-follow way; • Adapt your content (language, references, examples, types of evidence, visuals) to communicate your message to a diverse audience; • Use your voice to help your audience better understand the content and follow it with ease.

Join this session to find out how to adapt your presentation style to be a more effective pre-senter in a culturally diverse work environment.

Further information: This course will be led by Gosia Syta. A brief bio can be found under the Trainer header below.
