What Makes this presentation skills training workshop different?

You will learn ‘Have to Knows’, the ‘Good to Knows’ and the ‘Nice to Knows’ so that there are no more “secrets” to this world or speaking and presenting.
Then we will cover all the ground you will need to overcome the fears of public speaking, give you opportunities to get up and test the skills you have learnt and provide ongoing group feedback and expert evaluations as you progress towards mastering the different skills.
This workshop allows for on-the-spot problem identification and solving in a friendly environment.

Workshop Structure

This is a Modular based programme that takes you through the first 3 Phases of Speech Making and Presentation Skills.
Note. We will not cover the 4th module (Multimedia Presentations and Microphone
Techniques) and the 5th module (Specialist Presentation Skills) in this workshop due to time constraints. These form part of a 5 day Master Class Presentation Skills Workshop.

We will cover the 3 critical building blocks and core skills for Presenting for Success in Phases 1, 2, & 3.

Phase 1 – Speech and Presentation Writing and Development.

  • The planning, research and creative process.
  • Writing the speech for the audience’s needs and not just a generic “canned” speech. Arguably the most important and most neglected phase of making speeches and presentations.

Phase 2 – The Core Speaking and Presentation Skills

  • Understanding the core elements and practical speechmaking such as controlling nerves, eye contact, body language, voice projection, vocal variety, note management and the like

Phase 3 – Presentation Skills

  • Delivering the speech and presentation
  • Managing the platform
  • Using PowerPoint
  • Using Props
  • Using data projectors
  • Handling questions and objections

Note: – You will present your own business or personal presentation with live feedback
and evaluations.
