Presentation Skills

You will learn to use a toolbox of techniques that will polish your performance, bring your presentations to life and make them memorable and engaging.  The trainer will share strategies that will help you overcome nerves and perform exceptionally well on your feet. 

During the course you will get the opportunity to practice in a safe environment with supportive coaching and feedback helping you to grow your confidence and skills in seven key areas: 

  1. Deliver effective presentations that influence and persuade others
  2. Stretch your capacity to deliver in different situations
  3. Present with style, flair and presence to make your presentations memorable
  4. Use support materials effectively to engage your audience
  5. Enliven your presentation to make an impact
  6. Utilise strategies to maintain confidence and handle nerves, especially when you’re feeling wrong-footed
  7. Deal with difficult participants and overcome challenging questions

If you regularly deliver presentations and need to increase your impact with clients or staff then this is the course for you.  It’s not just for those who have to make presentations but for anyone who wants to improve how they get their message across and learn to be more confident on their feet.
