Delivering Presentations with Confidence
Delivering Presentations with Confidence - 1-day Scheduled Course
Having to present to an audience or to engage in public speaking activities can be a daunting and nerve wracking experience. The fear of presenting can often get in the way of what it is you want to talk about and the key messages you wish to get across to your audience.
This 1 day Delivering Presentations with Confidence course aims to give delegates a variety of skills, knowledge, tools, techniques and "tricks of the trade" to enable you to manage and overcome your nerves and to teach you how to create an impact when presenting to any size of group, large or small.
The 1-day programme is highly participative and covers all the key aspects of presentations as visual vehicles to use in a range of situations including "official" presentations to groups of colleagues or clients, as well as meetings, interviews, networking events and social situations. The course provides a comprehensive overview, beginning with the planning and preparation stage and then moving on to delivery and ways of engaging, managing and inspiring an audience.
The day ends with the opportunity for delegates to put what they have learned into practice by delivering a short presentation in a relaxed and supportive environment.
Suitability - Who should attend?
This Delivering Presentations with Confidence course is suitable for anyone who needs to present to an audience of any description, in any environment.
It will benefit newcomers and more experienced presenters alike.
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. There will be an opportunity for each delegate to deliver a short presentation, putting into practice the skills acquired during the day and receiving feedback and pointers for future improvement.

Delivering Presentations with Confidence
"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
