KEY PRESENTATION SKILLS REVEALED AT HIRSCH’S
Hirsch’s Silverlakes recently hosted their first monthly business networking event of the year with the CCBC where business owners and representatives are invited to mingle, socialise and network together.
The guest speaker for the morning was Steve Schwartz who is the owner and MD of Vandasol which is a multidivisional business that is active in several market sectors in South Africa. Steve is also a renowned guest speaker, MC and radio host. His topic for this morning was the key and basics of presentation skills.
Steve started the event by giving a short brief of what he does, and escalated to how important the little details are when giving a presentation such as spacing, the ‘red, yellow and green’ spots for speaking as well as body posture and the language according to one’s audience.
Commented the store PRO, Tsz Yan Lau “Steve kept everyone’s attention high by involving and making them participate in his fun practicals. During the 30 second introductions, we had a few attendees who actually applied what they learnt which was such a great thing to watch!”
After the talk, all the attendees had 30 seconds to talk about their business and lucky prizes were given sponsored by the attendees who hired tables. They then happily stayed to mingle over a cup of cappuccino.
