German term or phrase: Vortragen und Visualisieren
Title of a session in a training seminar on basic communicative skills -- "Performance and Visualisation"?

Presentation and Visualization
Explanation:

I would suggest Presentation for Vortragen.

However, I\'m not 100% clear on what is meant by visualization. If it is some process involved in preparing oneself mentally for presentations, then I would use that. One possiblity that occurred to me is that perhaps what is meant are the \"Visual Aids\" that accompany oral presentations. From the grammatical form, however, it does seem like visualization is what is meant here.

Ref: Have taken college-level communications courses where emphasis is on written and oral presentation.

HTH!

Speeches and visualization


Explanation:
Actually it should either be "Lecturing and visualization", or "Speaking and visualization", but I translated this as "Speeches..." because "Visualisieren" in this context is "das Visualisieren", i.e. a noun. So you have to make the "Vortragen" a noun as well. "Speaking" is a bit to informal while "Lecturing" is very formal and does not fit into the context. Thus, make it "Speeches..."
Cheers,

P.S. Just where have I seen this title before (nod, nod, wink, wink, say no more)...

Expression and Visualization


Explanation:
This is a hunch. It could have something to do with conveying ideas (especially hypothetical ones) in your head which are rather difficult to phrase - it's more of a psychological process than a skill and tends to be incorporated in those kinds of seminars (psychology and psychiatry). Given the involvement of "Stress", this is possible.
