Exceptional Impromptu Speaking: Seize the Moment

This course is invaluable to anyone who may find themselves called upon to speak on the spur of the moment. In unexpected and daunting yet critical situations like these, communication must be confident, concise, knowledgeable, and dynamic.

It’s not your project. it’s not your presentation. You think you’re in the meeting just to listen. But then comes the dreaded question directed right at you: “What do you think?” Do you know how to seize the moment even when you are caught off-guard? Are you able to quickly formulate and then deliver an articulate, succinct, memorable response?

Utilizing engaging interactive exercises, participants will acquire the skills to communicate “on the spot” with clarity, confidence, poise, and credibility. In addition, each participant will be provided with IG’s “Presentation Assistant” application, which will help them to prepare content for various business-related topics, should they be called upon to speak extemporaneously. Our “Presentation Assistant” application works on both IOS and Android devices.
