The Business of Presenting

Sensational Presenting

' We had snakes in Raiders of the Lost Ark and bugs in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. But supposedly man's greatest fear is public speaking. That'll be in our next picture' Stephen Speilberg. 

Are you required to present in the course of your work? Do you lie awake at night growing an ulcer when you think about the big or small presentation? Would you rather reroof your house in the middle of a 'Storm Helena' than actually give that presentation? Do you hide behind those never ending slides while your audience goes to sleep? Do you suspect that there has to be a better way, but just don't know how? 

If so, our course is tailor made for you. Presenting is now an essential skill in the modern workplace and no matter what position you are in, it will no doubt at some point require that you present something to someone in your working day. 

Learn to become a sensational presenter with sparkling skills which will leave both you and your audience energised and enthusiastic. Remember, your audience should be in someway different after your presentation, an altered point of view, a new perspective, increased knowledge, a challenged belief. 

This course will introduce you to a world where presenting becomes something that both you and your audiences anticipate with eagerness and energy. Knock slides out of the park and learn how to use your own and your audiences innate intelligence, curiosity and good humour instead.

We guarantee that you will never, ever dread a presentation again. In fact, you will become known as the 'go to' presenter because everyone has so much fun when you are doing it.
