Being able to effectively present is a key skill that anyone in business needs to acquire. It can be to potential customers, to existing clients, to internal staff, management, external colleagues, or competitors. It is a skill that when done correctly is very impressive, but when it’s done badly…… disastrous!
By the end of the course, participants will have:
- Learned the three main stages of creating an effective presentation; pre-presentation planning, performing the presentation, and post-presentation activities.
- Practised, demonstrated and analysed presentation techniques through two recorded presentations
- Investigated the correct use of visual aids and created suitable examples
- Practised methods of controlling nerves, aspects of body-language, and projecting their voice in a professional situation
Delegates should prepare a 10-minute presentation on any topic of their choice to be analysed at the beginning of the course. The second presentation should be on a work-related topic. There will be some time to work on this during the course but all materials and information should have been collected beforehand. Both presentations will be analysed by the group.
