Presenting for Impact
Course detail

We start with lots of exercises to help improve body language, project our voice, intonate and speak with conviction, focusing on the performance that is a key part of presenting.  Next we move on to looking at how to plan, structure and prepare for your presentation so you engage and hold your audience. We focus on including the “why”; why should someone listen and why will they benefit or be interested in what you are saying to gain their attention from the beginning. There is a section on how to manage and reduce nerves that tackles the irrationality of getting scared about talking in front of a group when we are all good informal speakers. To conclude the day you will have a chance to practice presenting and getting feedback in a safe and supportive environment.
