"Only the prepared speaker deserves to be confident" ~ Dale Carnegie, 1888 - 1955
A good presentation or public speech can change the world. Who can forget the enduring impact caused by Martin Luther King Jr. when he spoke powerfully about his dream that his nation would live the creed that all men are created equal? Or the history made when Ronald Reagan called on Mikhail Gorbachev to 'tear down this wall'? Or Winston Churchill - 'Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few.'
The ability to present confidently and persuasively is an essential skill and a key indicator of professional competence. Our Effective Presentation Skills workshop will help you develop skills that will enable you to change the world to benefit you and those who listen to you.
What do you want to change in the world? Have more clients buy more products and services from you? Help steer your organisation toward great things? Persuade your community to dream, grow and achieve more? Improve the world through charitable activities? Whatever change you seek, whatever impact you want to have on the world, your chances of succeeding are greatly improved by your ability to present in such a way that you confidently and charismatically persuade people to take action that will benefit them and you.
While some find presenting easier than others, we can all learn to be prepared, confident and successful when we present. With time and practice, you'll surprise yourself with how much you look forward to and enjoy opportunities to present.
Anyone who wants to present more effectively and persuasively. Business people required to present internally or externally. Sales people and other organisation representatives looking for an edge and an advantage over their competition. Anyone who lacks confidence in their ability to present effectively. Anyone who would welcome focused, frank and specific feedback on their presentation skills and guidance on ways to build on existing skills and develop advanced skills.
