Presentation Skills Masterclass
Thu 8 June 2017, 09:30 – 17:00 BST
Many of us are required to deliver presentations or pitches to clients or investors as part of our roles, but few of us have had training in this area. Designed as a follow on from the Communication masterclass, this workshop is for those who need to develop skills in speaking to audiences, including delivering formal presentations, pitches, and public speaking.
You will work with a theatre director on your own pitch or presentation, applying similar techniques to those used in a theatre rehearsal process, considering structure and how to present your content in a compelling way. You will be asked to come with a pre-prepared 2-minute presentation to work on throughout the day.
This workshop includes:
Use of voice and body language in presentations and pitches
Applying the science of persuasion to the delivery of your content
Stagecraft and use of visual aids, and avoiding ‘death-by-PowerPoint’
Practising your presentation on a stage and with an audience
Personalised feedback and coaching
