Course description

Presentation Skills for the Petroleum Industry – PSPI

One of the prime requisites for oil and gas professionals is to be able to deliver presentations in as clear, concise, and well-designed a way as possible. Some industry technical professionals are naturally gifted designer/speaker/presenters, others are not. However, with the proper training and practice any oil and gas professional can learn to make a convincing and persuasive presentation, and do so in a confident, assured, comfortable, and relaxed manner. This course is for individuals who are required, as part of their jobs, to deliver presentations in-house or in public, and who wish to perfect the art and craft of dynamic presentation-making in order to do so. Participants will participate in a full array of hands-on class exercises to improve presentation-making skills, vocal techniques, social interaction skills, visual aid preparation, etc. Attendees will deliver two presentations in class, both of which will be videotaped to measure improvement, and will discuss their performances in one-on-one private conversations with the instructor at the end of the course. Participants' progress will also be charted to quantifiably show areas in which actual improvement has taken place.
