Who Should Attend?

This course is vital for anyone who presents as part of their role or those who are looking to improve their practical presentations skills and/or build on their confidence when speaking in public.

Do I Need to Prepare Anything?

You will never get better by staying in your comfort zone, however we like to make things as comfortable as possible! So, we will ask you to deliver a small 5 minute presentation of your choosing on the day, in a safe and good-natured environment where everyone is equally learning (and equally nervous), and you will receive specific pointers on what you do right, and also what you could improve. We really learn best by “doing”, and this process will be absolutely huge in improving your skills and confidence going forward.


On completion of this one-day training course, you will receive your CMG MasterClass Certificate as well as your CPD Certificate containing 5 Structured CPD Hours. Please note certificates are issued at the close of the training course to participants who complete the full five hours.
