Presenting with confidence

Discover the techniques to ensure that you always present with confidence.

1 hour

How you present is just as important as what you present. Confident speakers are perceived as being knowledgeable, trustworthy and competent. And how you are perceived can have a big impact on your performance and career.

- Paul Taylor, IMechE Associate
