Seminars and Teaching

FIT Professional Studies Department

I gave Presentation Skills courses to several semesters of students in the Event Planning Certificate Program. We worked on content and they crafted a presentation. I then taught them about delivery before they presented to each other.

Wildlife Conservations Society Conservation Educators Fellows Program

I trained a group of specially selected visiting International Conservation Experts for an annual fellowship conference at the Bronx Zoo. I trained the mostly non-native-English-speaking group in preparation of presentations to each other and other international audiences
