This interactive session will focus on developing and perfecting your presentation skills as well as developing a compelling story to share with your community, organization, and funders. Being a nonprofit leader means you often find yourself at the podium presenting or leading meetings. Would you like to build your skills? Would you like to learn to make effective presentations? Would you like to seize the opportunity to share the full landscape of your organization’s work in a way not often reflected in a paper application? If yes, please sign up for this fun skill building session.
