Presentation Skills

This full day in-person session will show you how to influence stakeholder decisions by providing clear direction and inspiration in your presentation delivery. It will provide you with multiple tools and techniques for engaging the room from the outset, instilling your presentation with a clear direction for maximum impact and delivering with confidence, authority and authenticity.

Typical challenges this course will help you address include:

  • How do I overcome my nerves and deliver a confident and credible presentation?
  • How do I make sure I know my presentation inside out without overthinking it or making it sound overly scripted?
  • How do I deliver with impact in the room with different stakeholders to ensure engagement?
  • How to balance the need to deliver insight content with the need to create an audience experience that facilitates comprehension and  assimilation
  • How do I deal with negative responses, awkward questions and unnecessary tangents to ensure you meet the overall objectives for your presentation?

Key take-outs from the training include:

  • The importance of being crystal clear in our presentation objective and our strategy for how we are going to get there and what to do if go off track
  •  The importance of demonstrating high levels of energy at the very start and end of the delivery, rather than slowly warming up and petering off
  • The value in strategic pauses to help keep ourselves in check and to encourage a response from the audience, especially if they are drifting
