Presentation & Effective Communication
Do YOU get nervous before making a speech or presentation – or on any occasion when you have to speak in front of a group of other people?
We can help you make that whole process a lot easier – through practice and making sure that you are properly prepared.
Preparation is always the key. This could involve learning how to stand correctly, arranging your speech to make the biggest impact or making sure that you get to the point without too much waffling and shuffling of papers.
We can help you feel more confident in front of people and to make the most of the opportunity of making an impression – whether it’s in front of the Board of Directors or a room full of salespeople, your peers or even journalists.
Come to think of it, we can also help a Best Man make a speech to remember – for all the right reasons!
This course – developed while working with Dame Kelly Holmes’ Education Trust at Gateshead College - takes participants through the process of meeting and mixing with individuals and groups of strangers, feeling comfortable with one-to-one and board interviews as well as developing presentation skills and effective social communication.
Through examples and coaching, we help people develop their interpersonal skills, feel confident about themselves in interaction with their peers and show how they can present themselves in a variety of environments in a positive light.
We can guide people from the first act of walking into a room full of strangers and making that all-important first impression to being able to give a presentation in public.
Video recordings enable the participants to review and improve their performances as the day progresses.
