Hi Stephen,

Thanks for your comment.

Your point about follow up is right on target. One presentation skills course will never make someone an expert. Even for those of us in the business, I believe we need to continually practice and upgrade our skills.

I find, however, that many course participants just want to take a 2 or 3 day course and be done with it. I find receptivity to follow up isn't always there. Do you have this problem too?

BTW, I love the name of your company!

Best,
Kathy

Hi Fred,

Thanks for stopping by!

You're so right about people not being specific enough in their goals. So many times people say, "I want to become a better presenter." But that's so broad, it's very hard to know what exactly to work on and when you've actually accomplished that goal."

Best,
Kathy

Great post. The other point i always emphasise is that any course you attend can only be a base to work from. look for a course that offers continued back up or manuals that you can continually learn from.

Good Post.

Too many times people aren't specific enough about what they want to accomplish.

You emphasized how important that is, and that it should be clear and simple.

One step at a time and you'll get there!
