Presentation Skills

Delivering a presentation has been rated as the thing business people dread most. In a survey, people placed death as number 7 on the list! However, it doesn’t need to be that way.

This interactive in house presentation skills course is specifically designed to build confidence by providing participants with the knowledge and skills to effectively plan and deliver professional presentations. We cover core 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 presentation skills course is an opportunity to hone and practice the skills taught through a practice presentation in the afternoon. Delegates benefit from detailed feedback on their technique from trainer and other delegates.

  • A feature of the course is the use of a Knowledge/Skill Checklist - a list of the knowledge and skills being developed on the course. Participants rate themselves before and after the training course, to establish the extent to which they have benefited. This also gives the participant, and their line manager, further analysis of their strengths, highlighting any further development needs
