Presentation and Communication Skills

I think we all secretly admire those people that seem to communicate effortlessly – the people that naturally engage, deliver compelling and memorable messages, and capture our attention with their personality.

But how do they do it? This workshop explores simple techniques to improve your ability to communicate effectively, so that people remember you, and your message.

It turns conventional wisdom on its head and presents ideas and tools that have the power to transform the way you communicate, whether it’s in meetings, presentations, conference calls, speeches… even voicemail!

Designed for
Anyone can benefit. Maybe you’ve got a presentation soon that you’re nervous about; maybe you’re always in meetings but sometimes think no-one seems to listen to you; or maybe you’re an accomplished communicator but want to fine- tune your skills.

Whatever your reason, this highly interactive workshop will give you the tools techniques to help improve your personal effectiveness, profile and brand.

Learning outcomes
Participants can expect the following types of outcomes that will ultimately help them and their organisation achieve its goals:

  • How to communicate with ease, impact, clarity and absolute confidence.
  • Understand the underlying principles of truly effective communication, including pace and eye contact (often the complete opposite of what people expect!).
  • How to prepare and use notes effectively to completely take the pressure off you, enabling your natural personality to shine.
  • How to structure any form of communication to ensure it has impact and clarity. A ridiculously simple framework that can transform your communication.
  • How to use visual aids, such as slides, to reinforce your message and not distract your audience, as is so often the case.
  • How to handle questions with authority and confidence, and not blow your credibility in the closing minutes!
  • How to get your emails to stand out from the crowd in a world of information overload.
