Advanced Presentation Skills

Overview

Delivering a presentation is at times one of our deepest fears. However, the fear and anxiety associated with this crucial skill can be overcome, once the correct tools and techniques are understood and used – structuring material, engaging the audience and self-management.

During this lively and interactive learning event, participants will develop individual presentations that reflect their unique working environment and apply their learning as they go. Strengths and weaknesses are identified; new methods for improving performance are highlighted with group feedback and video camera support, ensuring all are able to embed the new techniques learned. Participants will also feel healthy levels of challenge, reward, and self-awareness throughout this learning journey. This self-awareness will create the desired attitude and behavioural changes that are critical to the success of each presentation.

All feedback provided to individuals will be conducted with professionalism and dignity, allowing all involved with the opportunity to make relevant and powerful changes in a safe working environment.
