Presentation Training - Compelling Presentations

Duration

One day

Overview

This is a highly interactive, full-day workshop which focuses on all the key skills needed when planning and making a compelling presentation.

Course Flyer

 

There is an emphasis on group exercises from the start so as to reduce the ‘impending doom’ feeling of the presentation practise (which is also captured on video). The numbers are limited to a maximum of 8 people to ensure each and every participant receives personal focus from the trainer.

 

Who is it for?

This workshop is aimed at those who have had limited or no previous presentation training. They are, however, still likely to be currently giving presentations and would like some structured support on how to make them land more effectively, and to increase their credibility in the process.

What else is included?

  • A comprehensive workbook which covers everything included on the day, meaning your people do not have to worry about making notes and can concentrate on what is being discussed.
  • A copy of their presentation in an HD video file. We have found that the opportunity for participants to study their own presentation has consistenly been the biggest ‘eye opener‘ and is therefore of huge value.
  • Personalised feedback summary on their presentation style to give each participant some key insights into what they need to focus on going forward.
  • Post workshop email reminders of the key points that were covered, at regular intervals to maximise retention so that your people are more likely to put what they learnt into practice.
  • 6 months of email support for each and every participant, so, should they run into any specific problems or require an expert opinion, we will be on hand to provide advice and encouragement.
