This workshop will show you how you can transform your ideas into convincing interactive presentations. The most important elements of successful presentations, training sessions and meetings are straightforward to name, but not always quite so easy to implement. It's essential for the presenter to capture and maintain the attention of the audience, to present effectively, create interest, encourage excitement and to captivate the participants. In this training session we will explore how you can increase understanding and retention in a presentation. You will receive background information based on scientific research, about improving communication techniques and about the workings of the brain. You will also see examples of best practices, effective communication, and presentation designs, all of which contribute to the creation of long-lasting impressions.

  29. 29. A picture is worth...An enigmatic woman is sitting upright, with her arms folded, inwhat appears to be an open loggia with dark pillar bases oneither side. Behind her a vast landscape recedes to icymountains. Winding paths and a distant bridge give only theslightest indications of human presence. The sensuous curvesof the womans hair and clothing, are echoed in the undulatingimaginary valleys and rivers behind her. The blurred outlines,graceful figure, dramatic contrasts of light and dark, andoverall feeling of calm are characteristic of Leonardos style.The image is so widely recognized, that it is considered themost famous painting in the world.
