Presentation Skills (Virtual)
Do you want to become more confident at delivering powerful presentations? Presentations that ensure you will get your message across, that create impact?
Whether you are presenting to an individual or a group, it can strike fear into the most professional, experienced people and cause stress and anxiety. We all have to speak in public from time to time, but why is it that some people seem very comfortable on their feet while others could almost faint at the mere thought? This course is designed to develop the skills of individuals at all levels to present a tailored message with clarity, confidence and impact.
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:
- Deliver effective presentations that influence and persuade others
- Stretch your capacity to deliver in different situations
- Present with style, flair and presence to make your presentations memorable
- Use support materials effectively to engage your audience
- Enliven your presentation to make an impact
- Utilise strategies to maintain confidence and handle nerves, especially when you’re feeling wrong-footed
- 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.

A word from Kate:
I formed AKU Training in January 2014 and I’m now excited to be working with individuals and organisations across Northern Ireland and beyond to develop knowledge and skills for career enhancement and organisation success. It’s those ‘lightbulb moments’ on a training course that inspire me. When a participant stops in their tracks and says “why didn’t I know this before? or “That will really change how I do x, y or z”. That’s where my buzz comes from, knowing it’s really worked.
I'm the lead trainer for a number of courses:
- Effective Report Writing
- Interpersonal Skills
- Event Management
- Presentation Skills
- Time Management
- Marketing Fundamentals and Marketing Management
- LinkedIn Training
- Zoom Training
I believe our success at AKU comes from four key areas:
Our training is not theory based from a book. It's fun, engaging and practical. It deals with real challenges and provides templates and tools for immediate improvement.
WE'VE WALKED THE TALK

We are also expert trainers with vast experience of sharing our knowledge in the most effective way to transfer that knowledge to you.
