The success measures for the workshop are:

  • Trainees learn key techniques in presentation preparation, gain confidence in making their presentation content more focused, structured and memorable and
  • Are more effective and efficient in how to prepare successful presentations

If a trainee has an imminent forthcoming presentation, then a good follow on session would be PSC Elective: Presentation Skills, which focuses on presentation delivery techniques and skills.
