One day in-company training course

You will:
  • Learn how to plan and structure your presentation
  • Understand how different audiences / users view - and filter – information
  • Profile and evaluate your audiences
  • Learn how to plan your key messages
  • Explore your own presentation style; and how to adapt and optimise your own style
  • Learn tried and tested techniques for producing attention-grabbing presentations
  • Learn how to maximise your personal impact through structure, style, delivery and voice
  • Learn how to engage your audience
  • Practise all of these techniques using videotaped presentations
  • Benefit from expert guidance and feedback

You will be asked to bring any visual aids you normally use (laptops, PowerPoints, etc) and a specific presentation that you wish to improve, practise, and perfect. The day is flexible to allow a relevant balance of theory and practice, but a typical outline follows:

Icebreaker exercise

Impromptu 2-minute presentation with minimal preparation. Each presentation will be video-taped and played back for discussion and analysis.

Preparation
  • Why are you presenting?
  • Who are you presenting to?
  • Where and when are you presenting?
  • Different types of presentation to choose from
Planning and structure
  • Planning the content, to achieve your objectives
  • Visual aids and props
  • Facts and figures
  • Interaction and feedback
  • Documentation and supporting materials

Doing it: If time allows, an intermediate practical exercise to allow participants the chance to practise each presentation, for live feedback and constructive criticism.

Delivery
  • Timing, sequence, and rhythm
  • Use of your voice
  • Using notes and prompts
  • Communications skills and information flow
  • Non-verbal communication
  • Audience engagement, and the Q&A

Final presentation: Each participant will be video-taped presenting their complete presentation, which is then played back for analysis and assessment.
