How does it work?
The whole Programme is highly experiential. Over the 2 days you’ll do 11 presentations, finishing with an 8-minute business presentation on the second day. This means that a lot of the confidence and experience you’ll be gaining will be on your feet. And you’ll be watching the other participants present so you’ll be getting good ideas from the way they present, as well as feedback from them when you present.
We’ll take you through it step by step – the trainer for each programme is chosen for the quality of their experience as trainers and presenters. They’re also passionate about people, so even though everyone’s different they’ll know how to bring out the best in you.
We’ll cover all that you need to know about creating and delivering a successful business presentation, whether that’s a Board report, the introduction of a new product, a motivational speech or a client seminar.
And with the tried and tested Presentation Training ProcessTM that we’ve developed over the last 20 years we know that you will find each step easily achievable – and that you’ll actually look forward to getting out in front.
Each of your presentations will be recorded onto a personal SD video card so you can see what you are doing well and what you’d like to do differently. This ensures you receive individual feedback and coaching over the entire two days.
You’ll be working on your own business material and – here’s the great part – there’s no preparation whatsoever needed for the course. We believe that you know enough already: it’s our job to bring it out in you!
