Suitability - Who should attend?

Why the topic is important

In the changed world in which we live and work, many things about presentations remain the same. For the presenter, there is the chance to prepare and deliver a fresh idea. And their audience has the chance to leave the meeting, having had their thinking changed in a way that is useful to them. And yet how we are presenting and being presented to has undergone a significant shift.

And whilst every presentation is still very much an opportunity for change, how you approach and deliver presentations in the video world in order to make that difference, will need to change too. To get to this point requires a journey, bringing things with you that worked well before; and learning to adapt to what it takes to present well in this new place.

As we’ll be living with video for a while longer, how do you go about making a successful presentation over a screen? How do you create a moment where you can convey your idea, hear others and have everyone contribute and leave with value? How do you prepare, perform and build your personal confidence to enable you to do this?

What will the course do to support your marketing activities

It will enable you to get your ideas understood more readily, perform well and with impact when it comes to presentations and to create more successful outcomes as a result through:

  • Building a sound approach to preparation and practise
  • Understanding yourself and your audience more fully
  • Developing flexibility in your style and approach
  • Making an impact presenting over video
  • Developing confidence in your skills to deliver your material
