Confident Presentation Skills

View booking options

Overview

In person or online, speaking in front of a group can be hard. You need tools to create concise, engaging material and then deliver it in a way that looks confident, grabs your audience's attention and keeps it until the very end.

By the end of the training course, the delegates will be able to:

  • Show confidence and control their nerves
  • Write rich, concise material with a story
  • Engage the audience and keep their attention
  • Communicate authentically
  • Use visuals effectively
  • Adapt to the unexpected

Each attendee brings a 4-minute presentation on any subject they like, in the form of simple notes (and visuals if they wish). They deliver this twice, building it into a thing of utter beauty: powerful, persuasive and easy to deliver. Each attendee should also have their preferred note-taking medium.

"Fantastic, engaging course with practical tips to implement."
