Lecturing and delivering knowledge and information

Train the trainers” (Become a successful lecturer who can excite the audience)

 

PURPOSE

Imagine that you had to teach you audience something new, and excite them to actually use the knowledge and skills in practice, because you know that this will help to them work more efficiently, achieve better results and cooperate more closely. What do you need to become a good lecturer? How do you motivate people and convince them that they should use your recommendations, instructions, know-how and skills because it is to their benefit?

Imagine yourself organising a short seminar or a workshop. How can you make sure that the audience will actively participate in it? Perhaps you would like to become a competent moderator sailing effortlessly through seminars and similar events? What moderation tools and teaching methods will help you?

Or think about this one – presenting business results in a meeting, informing your audience about your work and achievements. How do you decide what to include and what to leave out? And how do you present useful information in an interesting way?
