A great presenter has two unique qualities: appropriate skills and personal confidence. This confidence comes from knowing what you want to say and being comfortable with your communication skills. In Presentation Survival School, a two day workshop from Profiles Asia Pacific, you will master the skills that will make you a better speaker and presenter. The workshop will be held from September 10 to 11, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Unit 502 OMM Citra Building, San Miguel Ave., Ortigas Center, Pasig City.
