Presentation Skills

This Presentation Skills programme aims at taking you through a step-by-step process for structuring and delivering effective presentations.

It starts with the preparation of your material and a study of your target audience, venue and intention. Then the programme investigates how to control your nerves and to use positive body language and eye contact. We then move onto crafting a professional speech using a proven formula and then look into ways that you can maximise the verbal aspects by sounding interesting to listen to. We study the use and “abuse” of visual aids, how and when to use them to enhance your presentation, and finally dealing with answering questions, and controlling your audience.

All delegates are filmed four times, giving their presentations and copies of these presentations are given to the delegates on a dvd. 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.
