At this event, Darren Menabney will take you on a journey through the world of "storytelling," which is key to keeping the audience captivated during such a speech or a presentation.

Speaking in front of a big audience can be a daunting experience. However, public speaking and presentations are vital skills for any business professional, and mastering these can lead to new and exciting opportunities.

In this interactive session, Mr. Menabney, who teaches Business Presentation in the GLOBIS MBA programs, will draw on his extensive experience in coaching and storytelling to introduce fundamental concepts that can help you be a better speaker and deliver a killer presentation.
