Presentation Skills for Non-Native English Speakers

In today’s global business world, the ability to effectively communicate a message in person and online is critical to a leader’s success. A leader who can deliver strong, clear presentations is better positioned to influence others and to be recognized for their contributions. This can be particularly challenging for people whose mother-tongue is not English. Lack of clarity can be caused by limited vocabulary, differences in sentence structure or a strong accent, but it can also be caused by not being explicit or direct enough. Furthermore, what constitutes a “good” presentation in one culture may not be acceptable in another. Instructor Barbara Boldt is an international facilitator, educator, and coach with two decades of experience empowering global managers and executives to deliver clear, impactful, memorable messages.
