During this hands-on, experiential based course participants will develop their skills and personal style through a combination of learning and - essentially - the use of immediate feedback from the peer group on their developing abilities, as over the 3-day period they build and deliver increasingly high impact presentations. Whether you are presenting to the board, to shareholders, employees or the public, your presentation and delivery management skills at this level are critical. They will make the difference between you and your presentation being a resounding success and a total failure.
This course can be designed for all levels of experience: For professionals with little or no presenting experience, who would like to develop their presentation skills to ensure that their presentations have maximum impact; as well as for those who have already some experience in presenting but are ready to take those skills a stage further.

How we build your confidence
A blend of delivery styles ensures that all learning patterns are catered for and attendees not only gain the maximum advantage of the information provided and discussed, but also the confidence to own it. Core to this journey is the application of the widely acclaimed 70:20:10 model of learning where you will engage in understanding and discussing the aspects covered, interpret these into practical and relevant application and then truly discover and refine these skills through “live” application of practice and peer-to-peer feedback.
