Improving Presentation Skills - 1 Day Course

View Programme

Overview

Virtually all of us at some stage in our careers (or indeed, in our private life) have to stand up and present and yet very few of us are any good at it. The level of presenting is generally so poor that it has spawned the modern phrase: ‘Death by PowerPoint’. Few people know how to present well enough to generate audience reaction and interaction.

A successful presentation is one that wins people; it is one after which they say or think:

  • "That was - clear, interesting, informative, enjoyable, inspiring"
  • "He/she was - knowledgeable, confident, prepared, at ease ...a natural!"
  • "I am - glad I came, ready to buy, persuaded, excited by what I heard"

Most people are so frightened of the prospect of presenting that one survey’s participants put presenting right at the top of what they feared most, way ahead of snakes, flying, spiders and even death!

But it is also fact that as you progress up the career ladder then the art of presenting becomes more and more important and integral to your job: presenting to staff, visitors, suppliers, customers, your team, etc…
