Presentation skills

Presentation skills

Good presenters are like gold dust extremely valuable but incredibly hard to find. Knowing one's subject is one thing. Having the skills to present it clearly, enthusiastically and persuasively is quite another. Effective presentation skills can be learned and lack of confidence (the single greatest barrier to successful presentations) can be largely overcome by training.

This highly practical course, which makes extensive use of both group and individual tuition, will show delegates how to win and hold the attention of their audience, and ensure that their message is always understood and remembered. It will also give them an on-going development tool to take away their personal video of each of their presentations together with the course leader's feedback.
