After 5 days of intensive preparation, I conducted a learnshop on Powerful Presentation Skills and Reporting on May 9, 2012,  to 11 managers of Manila Doctors Hospital complete with practicum accomplished within 3 hours (9:30 am to 12:20 pm).

The 11 manager-learners were manageable considering there was a practicum in which all participants were asked to present an 8-minute reporting presentation.

All the formulated and consensually agreed learning objectives were achieved.



At the end of the 2 to 3 hours of teaching-learning sessions, the managers – learners should be able to:

Terminal Learning Objectives:

  • Demonstrate a step-by-step accomplishment of essential tasks needed in preparing for a presentation.
  • Demonstrate ability to create proper digital slides to be used for presentation.
  • Demonstrate ability to deliver a powerful presentation using the following criteria: verbal delivery – clarity and understandability of contents; use of digital slides – clear and clean; achievement of objectives of presentation.

Enabling Learning Objectives:

  1. Explain what are “presentations” and “reporting” being done in a hospital setting; being done by hospital managers.
  2. Explain the difference between “presentation” and “reporting.”
  3. Enumerate the six common types of presentations that hospital managers should master.
  4. Enumerate the usual objectives and parts of the six common types of presentations.
  5. Enumerate the essential quality parameters and criteria of powerful presentations.
  6. Enumerate the two requirements needed to produce a powerful presentation.
  7. Enumerate the two general quality targets in creating digital slides for presentation.
  8. Use a checklist in preparing for a powerful presentation.
  9. Use a checklist in evaluating a presentation.

Teaching-learning activities:

  1. Independent Study of Facilitator’s Hand-outs
  2. Lecture
  3. Learnshop and Practicum
  • Preparing a text of a presentation.
  • Preparing digital slides for a presentation.
  • Delivering a presentation.
  1. Feedback and Reflection

Learnshop and Practicum:

Each participant will give an 8-minute reporting using a Powerpoint presentation.  The scenario is he/she is being asked to give an 8-minute reporting to the Senior Management Team and Management Committee on “Meeting the Challenges in my Unit or Position  – my Plans in 2012.”  The presentation will be prepared before May 9, 2012 and delivered on May 9, 2012.


We had videotaping and evaluation of the practicum (presentation by the participants).  The video will be given to each participants as soon as possible for them to look at how they did their presentation and make the necessary improvements.

We were able to test the Presentation Evaluation Checklist Rating Scale that I created.  It was simple to use and comprehensive enough.    There were 3 evaluators per presentor.

The group (participants and facilitator) agreed to have an actual presentation in the SMT or Mancom on a staggered basis, one,  to demonstrate the skills of presentation they have acquired and two, to report on the challenges they are encountering  as managers and how they plan to face the challenges.

The group also agreed that all hospital managers should take this module.


With Ronna Layton of Human Resource Division and her staff.  Also, an intern from Business Development Division helping in the videotaping and documentation.
