Giving Presentations and How to structure a Talk

Giving presentations, using the English language to keep audience attention, to pursuade and to inform. All presentations have a common objective. People give presentations because they want to communicate in order to: ·

  • inform
  • train
  • persuade
  • sell

A successful presentation is one of the most effective ways of communicating your message. And because English is so widely used in international business, a working knowledge of the vocabulary and techniques used in an English language presentation is a valuable asset.
