Create Presentations that Persuade & advance your skills to deliver more effective presentations

A one-day course – book now!

Date: 27thFebruary 2018

This CPD accredited MasterClass is specifically designed to take you through the important steps in planning, structuring and delivering your presentation, to ensure it is well presented, informative, and most of all memorable!

Many presentations we see are not as effective as they can be and often fall short to engage the audience or ‘seal the deal’. The role of you / the presenter is not to ‘stand-and-deliver’ its to engage and persuade your audience and know what the end objectives are and deliver on them.

Book your place now!

The ‘real’ purpose of a presentation is to inform, inspire and persuade. Therefore, you need to define what you want the audience to think, feel or do as a result of your presentation.

Capturing an audience’s attention gets a presentation off on the right foot and this often means doing something creative or unexpected.

This course will teach you how to create more effective and persuasive presentations and you will learn how to truly enhance your skills.

During this workshop you will use and enhance an existing PowerPoint presentation selected by you, as the basis to develop a more effective presentation strategy and structure. Therefore, it is essential to bring along your own laptop with a prepared 5-10 minute PowerPoint presentation.

You will also explore successful ways to deliver your presentations in a more effective way by developing your skills to ensure your message is understood and remembered, whilst adding some surprises to hold your audience

We guarantee that you will be learning from a trainer who is experienced in bringing out the best in people of all levels of experience.
