Presenting with confidence is an essential business skill. Whether your people are delivering a client presentation or speaking internally, good presentation skills are crucial for them to achieve success – and many people have a real fear of public speaking. This highly effective course will help participants overcome nerves by applying practical techniques that help them become more confident when they present. They will learn the secrets of non-verbal intelligence – how to use body language to their advantage and how to maximise the power of their voice. They will discover the most effective ways of structuring their presentation, getting the level of detail right and presenting their key messages with impact. Supportive feedback based on video recording means that participants leave with greater confidence and competence to present effectively in any situation.
