Presentation Zen European Seminar.

The Presentation Zen approach encourages you to think differently and more creatively about communication. This hands-on seminar uses exercises and examples to explain why most presentations fail, and show you a better way of preparing, designing and delivering presentations. It is highly recommended for anyone who creates or delivers presentations, especially using visual aids such as slides.
