Volunteers, Charities and NPOs Get a Break on Public Speaking Skills

Burlington, ON – September 16, 2010:
People volunteer for many reasons. One of those is to develop new skills. The problem is that Non-Profit Organizations (NPOs) have little or no budget for training.

One of the most important skills that people in any line of work (profit or non-profit) need to develop is communication skills in general and public speaking (presentation skills) in particular. These skills are important to both individual and organization success. Once learned, these skills stick and can be transferred to other work.

How can volunteers transform their presentation skills?
Volunteers, executives and staff of NPOs are invited to attend this free Presentation Skills Clinic sponsored by Bay Gardens and featuring local presentation skills expert, George Torok.

Who: Volunteers and staff of local charities and non-profit organizations
What: Special 89-Minute Presentation Skills Clinic
When: Monday September 27, 2010 – 8:31am to 10:00am
Where: Bay Gardens, 1010 Botanical Drive, Burlington, ON
Cost: No Charge
To Register: Contact Gisela Zehmer Gisela@BayGardens.ca or 905-574-0405

Like any good presentation – we will start and finish on time.
