On this course you’ll learn how to deliver a high-quality, engaging presentation that leaves a lasting impression on your audience

The thought of delivering a public presentation to colleagues or clients often fills many people up with dread. Generally, we aren’t used to having a group of people, no matter how few or many, pay full attention to what we’re saying in a formal setting. This can lead to nerves and anxiety, which in turn impacts on the quality of your execution.

This is a one day training course to help improve the standard of your presentations, leaving you feeling more confident and armed with the techniques for success.

Important note: In light of recent news regarding Covid-19 (Coronavirus), we understand many in London, throughout the UK and worldwide are choosing to work from home. This means some customers may find it difficult to attend our courses in-person at present. However, please be aware that we offer online training for this presentation skills course. Online training is delivered via Skype to the same high-standards as our in-person training. Please take care and look after one another.

How we can help?

Our presentation skills training course aims to help individuals or teams improve the quality of their presentations, with a particular focus on developing ease and confidence of speaking in front of a group and leading the room.

We provide you with the vital tools for managing and overcoming any nerves, as well as training you on how to deliver key messages in the clearest and most effective manner. We’ll go through tried-and tested techniques for applying the fundamental rules of structure and delivery to ensure that you keep your audience fully engaged at all times.

Furthermore, the course covers the key skills required for presentation success, such as engaging the audience using physical and verbal pointers, tailoring your structure to your audience, the use of visual aids, listening and feeding off your audience, and making the entire presentation a memorable experience.

The course lasts for a day and is delivered at your office. It’s suitable for anyone that regularly delivers (or wishes to regularly deliver) presentations to clients and prospects, such as sales and client relationship professionals. It’s also relevant for those leading internal meetings with colleagues, such as managers, team leaders, and supervisors.

Course Agenda

The course includes the following:

– Handling and managing fear and nerves: Learn the techniques to keep you on track, develop a positive mindset and to overcome self-limiting thoughts and behaviours

– Qualities of an effective presenter: A comprehensive survey of the key skills and attributes that characterise truly effective presenters

– Planning a presentation: Crafting your presentation to meet the needs of your audience

– Structuring your presentation: Preparing your opening, beginning, and ending

They will have the opportunity to revise these in the light of the theory they will have been exposed to in the morning session, and then they will receive a full evaluation of their presentation skills in the afternoon. The evaluation will be completed by our trainer for each attendee, with constructive praise and tips on where to improve.
