Business presentations are invaluable opportunities to demonstrate our knowledge, expertise and experience. Achieving the desired results often depends on how well we present our case to a Board, to senior management or to a group of external stakeholders. .
Yet presenting to a group is very different to other ways of communicating our expertise. It requires more than a high level of technical knowledge; it demands that we have a strong command of verbal and non-verbal communication skills.
In the Confident Presentation Skills workshop, participants learn how to present calmly, clearly and confidently. Within a positive and encouraging learning environment, participants gain the practical skills to be influential presenters in real-world situations.
Executives, managers, professionals, business owners, consultants and others who are required to speak in public or present before a group.
· How to take account of the audience's needs and preferences in the design and preparation phases.
· How to create a confident presence and energy to conquer performance anxiety.
· How to produce the required voice to be heard clearly.
· How to create an appropriate and logical presentation structure.
· How to engage the audience's attention and keep them involved throughout.
· Handling questions and proven techniques for audience management.
· How to support your main points and use visuals effectively.
