Office poll: Have you had any training to improve your presentation skills?

We seem to spend a lot of time designing presentations, but ignore our skills as presenters. Have you received specialized training that improved your presentation skills? Share your experiences in our latest Office poll.

Our recent Powerpoint challenge, How Would You Improve This Slide was great. Many of you offered suggestions for improving the example slide, including dumping it and starting over! During the discussion, most of you agreed that the best presentation is of no use if the presenter has no skills. I'm wondering how many of you have specialized training for improving presentation skills? If none of the answers below quite describe your situation, please pick the one that most closely matches your experiences. Or, start a thread and give us more information. Yo.
