Introduction

Addresses the communication needs of those students or intending professionals required to speak in the presentation context. Specific vocal and physical skills are experienced to assist the student in presenting in a dynamic and focussed way. A technique to rehearse the material for presentation is explored. Strategies to allow the presentation to reach the listeners with the intended impact are investigated. The means of addressing performance anxiety is covered and the transference of these skills into professional contexts is developed.
