PRESENTATION SKILLS

 

This Presentation Skills programme takes learners through a step-by-step process for structuring and delivering effective presentations.

It starts with the preparation of your material and a study of the target audience, venue and intention. Then the programme investigates how to control nerves and to use positive body language and eye contact. We then explore crafting a professional speech using a proven formula and then look at ways to maximise the verbal aspects, by sounding interesting to listen to. We study the use and ‘abuse’ of visual aids, and how and when to use them to enhance a presentation; and finally how to deal with answering questions, and to control your audience.

All delegates are filmed four times, practicing various aspects of their presentations, and a DVD of these presentations is given to each delegate. Highly practical and fun!  

This Presentation Skills programme enables delegates to prepare and deliver professional presentations at all levels and for all types of situations.
