Running a Tight Ship: Keep Training Friendly and Focused
You walk into a classroom ready to set up for your presentation. Rather than an empty room, there are twenty-five seated people looking at you impatiently. “You’re late!” you hear from a man in the front. “We should have started an hour ago!” You glance down and see that you are wearing clown shoes and no pants. “I must be dreaming,” you think, and thank goodness, you are.
Have you ever had a presentation anxiety dream like this? Jean Franzblau has!
The “Running a Tight Ship” workshop offers tips, tools and ideas to keep your sessions friendly and focused. By "friendly" we mean that your participants will feel welcome, comfortable and ready to learn. By "focused" we mean that your event will start on time, end on time and be protected from going off course. We’ll have group discussions and share war stories. Expect to leave with the wind in your sails and who knows – you may find yourself sleeping better before big presentations, too.
