Public Speaking Course

How to Present with Confidence and Impact

The Outcome for You

Only a small percentage of the business community actually know how to give a knockout presentation.

Put simply, at the end of this course each participant will be a better presenter than when they started.

They will have a clear methodology of preparation to apply when creating their presentation.

They’ll know how to use their own style and personality to present with mastery, confidence and not bore their audience. They will know how to more effectively win the deal with their skill in moving the audience to action.

Public Speaking with Confidence

Here is a list of some of the key objectives you will see achieved as a result of this training.

The Structure of your Presentation

  • Being able to assemble and synthesise a large amount of information into its most digestible, persuasive form. It must be achieved without overloading or confusing the audience i.e. ‘don’t tell me how you made the clock, just tell me the time!’.
  • Organise your ideas into a structure that best delivers your critical message
  • Developing a methodology for making effective Powerpoint presentations (as well as using other visual aids as cues)
  • Clearly communicating the information when delivering presentations so that the ‘take home message’ the audience walks away with is exactly the one we intended

The Style to Communicate your Presentation:

  • How to take the best of your own style and enhance the effectiveness of the presentation. Being a great presenter is not about becoming someone you’re not, rather it’s about becoming the best presenter  by utilising your own unique style.
  • Exactly how to use your tone, words and body language to present in a compelling way that has the listeners excited to hear what’s coming next
  • Tips to increase your energy and ‘presence’ when you present to a group so you stand out amongst your competitors
  • Strategies for dealing with difficult/challenging people in the audience and how to keep control of the presentation without being derailed
  • Tips to increase your confidence in presenting with impact
  • Walk away with an energised motivation to improve their skill and impact in this powerful, important communication skill

Training Specifics

Class Size

We recommend that face-to-face workshop training sessions have groups of up to eight participants. Given each participant is giving at least three presentations each, this is the best size to allow for customised, specific feedback for each individual.

Employee turnout will not affect any pricing structure, as payment is based on per class rather than per head.

Workshop Methodology
