Present Like a Pro

Learn how to look and sound comfortable and confident in every speaking situation from the board room to the television studio. This session will focus on how to make more effective presentations to live audiences such as park boards, city councils, local service clubs and other groups. Participants will also get a chance to meet the press and take part in “mock” press conferences and video taped interviews. Fun, informational and effective.

Needs Assessment: More than ever, park and recreation professionals and board members rely on verbal communication to motivate others, gain support and influence public opinion. Anyone who acts as a spokesperson for their department, programs or the profession should learn how to command respect from the podium as well as during a media interview.
