Presentation Skills

Delivering a presentation has been rated as the thing business people most dread. In a survey, people placed death as number 7 on the list!  For many people, presentations are a daunting prospect - sleep is lost and nails are bitten.


However, it doesn't need to be that way. This interactive course is specifically designed to build confidence by providing participants with the knowledge and skills to effectively plan and deliver professional presentations. We cover areas including understanding the audience; planning the structure; using visual aids and body language to reinforce the message; controlling nerves and effective voice control to maximise presentation effectiveness.


A feature of the course is an opportunity to hone and practice the skills taught through practice presentation in the afternoon. Delegates benefit from detailed feedback on their technique from the trainer and other delegates. Video taping of each presentation for future playback/analysis is available.
