Presentation Skills Training
Overview

This presentation skills course will show you how to present with enthusiasm and confidence. Start looking forward to the chance to make a presentation, rather than dreading it.

This is a highly interactive course. Throughout it, you will practice what you are being shown using a presentation that you have delivered or are planning to deliver in the near future.

We will ensure that you return to work a far more relaxed presenter.

By the end of this course you will know how to:

  • Recognise the purpose and components of an impactful presentation.
  • Assess your own presentation skills.
  • Understand the key areas that you find most difficult.
  • Structure a presentation for maximum effect.
  • Deliver a presentation with confidence.
  • Use props for added emphasis.

Audience

This course is open to anyone who would like to improve their presentation skills.

In order to be able to practice what you are learning, you will need to bring along, material that can be used in the preparation of a short 5-minute presentation.
