This learning by doing workshop provides participants with successful presentation techniques which can be applied to any scenario or topic you may need to share with a small group or audience.  Its purpose is to enhance your communication skills, leadership development and professionalism.  Attending TTT/PPP will increase your confidence and effectiveness as a trainer, consultant, team leader, project manager, salesperson or public speaker.

TTT/PPP is a hands-on, do-it-yourself, intense 2-day immersive experience.  Attendance is strictly limited to 12 slots to ensure individualized coaching. TTT is the first of two required workshops for candidates wishing to teach APICS courses or programs.

Curriculum: TTT involves 2 full days of instruction, providing best practices such as proper media selection, room preparation, body language, engaging adult learning styles, asking open-ended questions, and dealing with distractions. This workshop includes videotaping participants as they demonstrate their ability to deliver a 5-minute and a 10-minute presentation. These pivotal assignments enable constructive peer critiques, giving presenters an opportunity to learn how the audience perceives their message. Our workshop is unique in our ability to provide a FUN, SAFE atmosphere where people can develop a personal presentation style guaranteed to optimize their effectiveness and the quality of their message.

Course will run 16 hours on Saturday Oct 5th and Sunday Oct 6th.  It will take place at the MDC Training Center in Hartford, CT.   Lunch will be provided.
