19Sep Presentation lessons from politics Manchester Join us for our WINClassics series, a range of workshops exploring fundamental soft skills topics regularly requested each year by our WIN community. This series is different to our Future Legal Leaders programme (supporting rising stars) and is open to in-house lawyers at all levels. Politicians have to speak regularly, at short notice, on a range of topics, in a variety of formats. There are many things we can learn from their approach, including their mistakes. With presentation skills one of our most requested topics, we are pleased to offer you a variation on previous presentation courses, delivered by an expert trainer who served for almost a decade as a Member of the Scottish Parliament. "The national Budget has just been published – it is around 500 pages. You are doing a live interview in 45 minutes, and then go straight to the Chamber for a full debate with the Finance Minister. Oh, and can you do Newsnight at 11 PM...and then Good Morning Scotland at 6.30 AM? Good luck!" This dynamic seminar will help you to assemble great material swiftly, fine-tune it carefully and structure it effectively. You will also learn how to get ready to perform and make the maximum possible impact. This WIN seminar is packed full of strategies, tips and shortcuts with immediate practical application. It has been adapted and shaped to provide a particular focus for in-house lawyers.
