Joan Francesc Cánovas will offer a course on June 28 with the title How to make public presentations: the keys to success. Public presentation is a technique that is often confused with an art. It needs technique, it can generate emotion and it can even be beautiful but the most important thing is that it achieves the objectives and therefore that it is effective. To do this we have to focus on four aspects: positioning of the speaker (the speaker), characteristics of what is called (the message), conditions that influence listening (noise) and audience analysis (the listener ). Mastering these four aspects in a world in which less and less is heard and is looked at more is the key to the success of a public presentation.
