We believe good presentation skills are not an art. Rather, they require skills that anyone can master. And while a clear message is important, how you deliver that message—virtually or in person—is just as important. Audiences judge us based on factors that, in reality, have no bearing on our competence and knowledge.
Whether your employees are new or experienced presenters, they benefit from the expert coaching and feedback they receive in our courses.
Courses can be tailored to different types of presentations. Your employees can focus on polishing sales presentations, executive briefings, and technical or scientific presentations.
We provide participants with easy, reliable strategies to structure every presentation. We help them get to the point, avoid rambling and make their message easy to understand and remember.
Participants learn to present by presenting. They have up to two opportunities to deliver a presentation during each course. They work individually to develop their own presentations. Then they practice their presentation and receive feedback from their group and their facilitator on their content and delivery skills. Participants record their practice presentations to refer to later.
People are generally nervous to speak in front of a group, and they often dread practicing new skills in front of peers. Our facilitators are experts at creating a safe and supportive learning environment. Participants know they can share ideas, ask questions, try out new skills and take risks without fear of negative consequences.
As a result of our presentation skills training, learners share a common language and a common set of criteria. During the course, they practice giving each other feedback using these criteria, and after the course they continue to support one other. This encourages the transfer of learning and allows for real organizational change.
Learners value the course materials because they outlive the session itself. Participants tell us they return to our materials to create their presentations after the course. Materials are all digital, and include:
Good presenters know their purpose is to provide audiences with the information they need to make the best decisions and move projects forward.
People make judgments about the presenter and their organization when they present. Remember that presenters display their competence, attitude and professionalism through the words they use and the confidence with which they deliver them.
When presenters can confidently represent your company or team with a clear, persuasive message, they stand out from the crowd. They have a better chance of winning new business and getting buy-in from key internal stakeholders.
Good presenters use proven techniques to draw the audience in, hold their attention and encourage action.
