Volunteer Education & Training: Presentation Skills
For NYJL volunteers, presentation skills are particularly important when in and outside of the Astor House. From commanding a room full of fellow volunteers to pitching a new idea at work, the way in which information is shared is vital to success.
On Tuesday, October 18, we welcomed Rodney Eric Lopez, Executive Director of Dancing Classrooms, to train volunteers on those skills and share best practices for presentation development and delivery. Dancing Classroom’s Latin-based dance classes have been hailed as the “Best in New York” by New York Magazine. These achievements combined with Rodney’s background in public relations and marketing made for a fun-filled and informative training.
Volunteers in attendance left with knowledge of:
- How to organize your presentation using the “chunk method”
- Using eye control, voice, pitch, and body movement to convey your authority and message
- How to build audience trust by keeping the topic relevant and interesting
Our thanks go out to Rodney for coaching us on these skills to propel our personal and professional success!
