Delivering Powerful Presentations
Delivering Powerful Presentations - 2-day Public Course
This Delivering Powerful Presentations course is designed to give individuals with some prior experience of presenting a refresher on presentation basics, followed by a set of more advanced skills to enhance their expertise.
The intensive two-day programme therefore begins with an overview of the fundamentals and then goes on to consider the more specific advanced elements of presenting. The aim is to give delegates a variety of skills, knowledge, tools, techniques and "tricks of the trade" to be able to create an impact in front of any group and in different situations. These include not only small or large presentation scenarios, but also interviews, meetings, networking events and social settings.
Participants will be given various opportunities to practise the skills discussed, delivering a pre-prepared presentation towards the beginning of the course and then again at the end to see the "before and after" effects.
Suitability - Who should attend?
This Delivering Powerful Presentations course is suitable for anyone who needs to present to an audience of any description, in any environment.
Please note that places are restricted to a maximum of 6 delegates for this course in order to ensure all delegates receive sufficient one to one personal coaching and tuition throughout the duration of the programme.
Outcome / Qualification etc.
On successful completion of the course, delegates will receive a Certificate of Attendance.

Delivering Powerful Presentations
"The following statements outline some of the concerns delegates have expressed on my Presentation Skills courses over the years:
- "I’d rather have root canal treatment than stand in front of our annual conference."
- "As soon as I get up there my mind goes blank."
- "I’m terrified something will go wrong."
- "I just know I’ll make a fool of myself when I stand up."
I thrive on the opportunity of working with my delegates to help them overcome their Presentation Skills concerns and anxieties. Drawing on 25+ years of personal and professional global experience of working with a range of audiences, I help delegates to practically address and overcome their fear of speaking to groups, as well as giving them a range of tools, techniques and "tricks of the trade" to make their presentations engaging, powerful and stimulating. Delegates leave the course with a new found confidence which enables them to deliver with impact and in doing so, grab and hold the attention of their audience". - Tom Courtney
