The Dynamic Presenter: Advanced Presentation Skills

In this world where resources are increasingly being reduced, and investment removed, being able to effectively get your ideas and value across during the presentation is vital. Integral to the success of anyone in business is the ability to put your ideas across in a way that makes your audience sit up and listen. Even if they don’t remember everything you say, they will remember how you said it. Therefore there is always a need to refresh and hone these all important skills to stay on top of your game. This two day highly interactive workshop is designed to help business professionals of all standards critically appraise their presentation skills in a dynamic and safe learning environment and learn new ideas, models and concepts. All delegates will have the opportunity to bring the presentations they are currently working on to incorporate the new techniques from the course and ensure they make a difference upon return to the office.

Turning 'Theory' into 'Practice'?

This programme is designed to accommodate the needs of all adult learning styles. Using a range of individual and group learning combined with theory and videoed presentations delegates will be able to develop their skills and confidence by a variety of learning methods. The experience in this presentations skills training is as close as you can get to having a personal, public speaking coach. You present at least three times over the course of two days. Your presentations are recorded and evaluated. And you get expert one- on-one coaching at the end of each presentation. Delegates attending are encouraged to bring with them a ‘live’ presentation that they are working on. The workshop environment will provide a dynamic forum in which to apply the real time learning and practise the presentation before returning to the workplace.

Who should attend?

Presenters wishing to build and develop existing presentation skills and deliver more dynamic presentations that will be remembered for having the power to influence and persuade.
