This newly designed webinar is a companion-piece to the webinar Briefings on Demand 1: Written Briefs, for those participants who wish to expand their briefing skills to oral briefs. It is also a stand-alone webinar for participants who wish to take only Briefings on Demand Part 2.

One of the key skills for public servants is the ability to present and engage in oral briefs. This webinar offers participants information and tips on how oral briefs support senior decision-makers, how to prepare for and deliver an oral brief, and how to respond to unexpected questions and challenges. In an interactive webinar, participants will learn from the experiences of public service executives and discuss their own real-life oral briefing challenges.

To practice your oral briefing skills, participants will be given a small pre-webinar assignment, to prepare for a practice oral briefing to present during the webinar.

If you would like to take both Briefings on Demand Part 1 and Part 2 together at a bundled rate, click here.
