Presentation Skills Training

Course Overview

Presenting information, solutions, technical data or sales pitches is a regular requirement in today’s business environment, but for many, the challenge is how to do it well, how to deliver with impact, how to be remembered for the right reasons! A key question is – do you enjoy presenting? Are you good at it? Do you receive positive feedback? Do you know what good looks like?

An Example Of A Presentation Skills Training Course

Below is an example of a Presentation Skills Course that we designed and delivered in the past 6 months:

This was a 2 day in-company course designed to develop presentation, communication and public speaking skills.

Delegates were required to prepare a short presentation prior to attending the course and an outline of another, these were delivered on several occasions resulting in the “finished article” on day 2!

Delegates were videoed and kept their tapes of the “before” and “after” presentations!
