02Oct WIN Yorkshire - Presentation lessons from Politics Leeds Politicians have to speak regularly, at short notice, on a range of topics and 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 WIN Yorkshire topics, we are pleased to offer you a variation on previous presentation courses, delivered by a new WIN 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 11pm...and then Good Morning Scotland at 6.30am? 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.
