How do you handle someone who upstages you during a presentation or meeting? How do you respond to someone citing statistics with which you’re unfamiliar? How do you react when your client or boss changes the course of your presentation or budget discussion in midstream? Adding “the finishing touches” will help you be yourself in front of an audience or executive team. You’ll learn to think on your feet, handle tough questions, engage the audience, and build rapport with any group—whatever its size.

Date(s) & Time(s):
