The second workshop to be hosted by VCUQatar’s Alumni Relations office this year, ‘Unleash the Presenter in You’ aims to illustrate how presentations can be fun. The workshop will show participants how to grow beyond the ‘five-bullets-per-slide’ Power Point presentations and teach them to become aware of the main ‘tools’ of the presenter: body language, facial expression and voice modulation. It will also train participants to utilize their individual strengths and resources to develop a unique presentation style while showing them how to invest more thought into the message to be conveyed and the needs of the audience. Participants will also learn how to develop clearer, more engaging and informative slides and handouts and enhance their stage presence.
Carolin Zeitler, who is conducting the workshop, is the Director of Arcata Interactive Communication Coaching and the Founder and Initiator of the How Women Work Conference. Ms Zeitler combined the skills and experience she gained from being personal coach, dance therapist and managing director for many years to create unique coaching programs for private and professional people. She has dedicated her professional life to inspiring, encouraging and empowering people to make a difference. She coaches those who want to create meaning, connection and flow in their work and in their lives, those who want to experience more joy and live up to their full potential. She believes that success in all its many forms is most sustainable when it is fuelled by passion and commitment, and that people are happiest when they strive to be the best they can be.
