Course Description:

Many people would opt for going to the dentist rather than volunteering to give a business presentation! Whether it is formal or not it is still a daunting task for most people. This programme aims at taking you through a step-by-step process for structuring and delivering effective business presentations. It is a Seta Accredited programme.

It starts with the preparation of your material and a study of your target audience, venue and intention. Then the programme investigates how to control your nerves and to use positive body language and eye contact. We then move onto crafting a professional speech using a proven formula and then look into ways that you can maximise the verbal aspects by sounding interesting to listen to. We study the use and “abuse” of visual aids, how and when to use them to enhance your presentation, and finally dealing with answering questions, and controlling your audience.

Delegates give four on-camera presentations and then receive a DVD of their presentations following the training. Highly practical and fun!
