Method

The training course offers simple but effective tools, which are easy to memorize and apply, even if you only need to make presentations occasionally.
The many practical exercises will help you to deeply integrate the appropriate linguistic formulae (vocabulary, expressions, syntax).
You will make presentations which become progressively more complex, and are closely linked to your work.
Because all the exercises are filmed, they are followed by constructive feedback.
Gradually, automatic responses take hold, and you will become relaxed, clear and assertive: your objective is achieved!
