Increase your confidence in delivering high-quality client presentations.

In a ‘people’ business, presentations are a key point of face-to-face contact. They provide an ideal opportunity to make an impact and build relationships with clients and stakeholders.

In this practical workshop, participants will develop and refine presentation skills, practising in an environment where only constructive feedback is allowed. You will analyse and improve your face-to-face communication style, and increase your skills and confidence in delivering effective and engaging presentations and debriefs.

Each delegate will have the opportunity to ‘stand and deliver’ several times, as well as reviewing recorded presentations, with the support of one-to-one coaching and feedback from the course tutor. There is a small amount of pre-course preparation.
