Event Details

Is there any skill in business which is as important yet as poorly executed as giving presentations?

A survey of 2,000 adults by YouGov showed that 50% of us listed public speaking as our top fear, compared to 34% being most afraid of heights, 28%  of dying and 24% of spiders. Perish the thought of presenting to a group of lethal spiders at the top of the Empire State Building!

The survey also showed that over 30% of business people felt their career prospects would be improved by better presentation and public speaking skills.

As a result of attending Giving Better Presentations you will learn how to:

  • Stay calm and in control
  • Connect with your audience
  • Command the stage
  • Structure your presentation
  • Keep the audience’s attention
  • Get the results you want more often

Giving Better Presentations is a one-day course which focuses on two main skills – structuring your presentation and performing your presentation.

 Structuring your presentation

  • How to design a presentation
  • The three keys to success
  • Using visual aids
  • How audiences receive presentations
  • How and why sales presentations or pitches are different 

Performing your presentation

  • Controlling and communicating through body language
  • Using the full potential of your voice
  • Dealing with nerves
  • Entertaining and using humour
  • Giving high energy presentations

While Giving Better Presentations has a clear structure we know you will present most successfully by being yourself. Good presenting doesn’t rely on rules. You need to try things out and decide what works best for you.

You'll learn new skills by doing, not listening to lectures. You’ll be ‘on stage’ trying different tools and techniques. For this reason the course is limited to just 12 delegates.
