Presentation Skills

Presentation Skills

This course is for people who have considerable experience as presenters, and may well have been presenting for many years, and for those who would like to ‘freshen up’ their presenting style.
We will look at the value of preparation – and paradoxically, how the better prepared you are, the better equipped you are to change your mind about which option to take when you are up against it. We will also look at handling difficult questions while maintaining your confidence. This course is fun, challenging, useful and practical.

You Will Learn How To 

Develop your presentation skills to transform yourself from new speaker to skilled presenter. Build the confidence and capability to give good presentations, and to stand up in front of an audience and speak well.
Create PowerPoint presentation using unique styles and techniques in a couple of clicks.
The course will help you look forward to your next performance instead of wishing you were still under the duvet.
