About the Program: 

Stand out in the sponsorship marketing industry by improving your presentation skills with the Presentation Skills Workshop for SMCC members. This pilot program focuses on the following learning objectives:

  • Developing confidence in preparing, rehearsing and delivering presentations
  • Understand how to use your body and voice to create presence
  • Learn the art of persuasion and how to deliver a presentation or argument designed to sway the opinions of others
  • Learn the art of giving constructive feedback
