Transformational Presentation Skills

Transformational Presentation Skills

If you have 5 or more people to train, contact us about in-house options for this programme.

Developing and delivering high-impact presentations

Having to give a formal presentation is often cited as the experience that people most fear and many will go a long way to avoid having to speak to an audience. And yet it is increasingly something that’s required as part of the job. These two intensive, challenging and hugely enjoyable days will leave participants wanting to present.

During the programme you will be introduced =mc‘s systematic methodology and practice the 10 key skills that will transform your ability to speak effectively in public. Skills such as audience engagement, use of gesture, eye contact, audio visual do’s and don’ts, and handling difficult questions. You’ll have the chance to deliver two ‘formal’, videoed presentations on a specific topic. And after each of these you will be coached 1-2-1 by an experienced =mc coach.

Who is the programme for?

This programme is for individuals who have to deliver formal presentations in front of an audience and want to boost their public communications skills. It’s the programme for you if you have to have the flexibility to prepare quickly when necessary, and need to be able to deliver complex messages in a powerful way.

  • “I did this training around 11 years ago when I was at the NSPCC and it’s still one of the best courses I ever did – the techniques have served me well and I continue to use them.”

    Hazel Russell, Head of Fundraising, PAPYRUS, Prevention of Young Suicide UK

  • “A very rewarding three days. It’s absolutely built my key skills and confidence and now I’m looking forward to putting all I’ve learned into practice.”

    Anna Mynett, Corporate Partnerships Manager, Dementia UK

  • “A very engaging, practical course. I learned an incredible amount over the two days and found myself improving quickly through the practical exercises.”

    Bryony Sinclair, Senior Policy & Public Affairs Manager, World Cancer Research Fund International

  • “Very professionally delivered course – I would definitely recommend it. In particular it was extremely valuable for me to get individual feedback on my presentation style. When I saw the video it was immediately clear what worked and what I could improve.”

    Todd Page, Advisor, International HIV/AIDS Alliance
