Event description

Description

This mid-level full-day workshop delivered by PREDDY&CO Partner and DBA Expert Shan Preddy will cover how you can build on your current experience to improve on your presentation skills and ensure your business’s mojo shines through.

What's involved?

You'll be sent a short pre-training questionnaire to complete and return in advance, so that Shan can tailor the workshop to exactly what you'd like to get out of it.

Limited to five places per session to ensure a high level of tailored interaction.

On the day, you'll each give a short, pre-prepared presentation which will be constructively critiqued. The areas in which you need to improve will be identified, and your strengths will be developed using techniques, guidelines and tips.

Video recording and playback will be used to deliver feedback and to accelerate your learning. The small size of the group (five delegates) means each person gets a very high level of personal attention.

You'll leave with the knowledge, skills and confidence to make immediate improvements to your presentations.

What will you learn about?

  • How to prepare a presentation.
  • Working to objectives and responses.
  • Structuring the content.
  • Using visual aids and equipment.
  • Using memory aids and notes.
  • Eye contact and body language.
  • Voice delivery and projection.
  • Nerves and what to do with them.

What will you leave with?

  • New knowledge and skills, plus increased confidence.
  • A personal critique of your own presentation style.
  • A full set of notes and templates.
  • A video of your own presentation for later reference.
  • An unlimited telephone and email helpline to Shan Preddy for any queries following the workshop.
