Essential Presentation Skills for for Attorneys: Virtual, Hybrid and In-Person


Public speaking is a core leadership skill. Attorneys are expected to be comfortable in a range of virtual, in-person, formal and informal situations. Whether you’re talking to a client or speaking in court, you want to deliver a clear, confident message. Mimi Bliss of Bliss Communications has updated her highly-rated CLE on presentation skills to cover a range of professional situations.

In this live, interactive workshop, you’ll learn how to sharpen your message to be more concise; engage your audience; master the virtual presentation, including technology tools such as polling, lighting and set-up; and use voice, gestures and eye contact to speak effectively. Attorneys who participated in last year’s workshop said the speaking tips were actionable and relevant to lawyers.

I found this to be very informative. I like the helpful hints on the different phases of a presentation on how to capture and retain my audience's attention.

Just really good practical advice that I can immediately employ. Wish more CLEs were like this.
