Communication is crucial to convey messages and instruction clearly and concisely, yet many people are fearful of having to address a crowd, or even a small group! Much of this fear stems from a lack of confidence and a shortage of skill. With some sound and fundamental preparation and delivery tactics, a speaker can be assured of communicating a convincing message to any audience. When we present, we are in fact marketing ourselves, so the “THIS IS ME MESSAGE” needs to be as positive as possible, from start to finish.

This course is intensely practical, with learners examining their own communication and presentation skills and ultimately harnessing their new learnings, by delivering a presentation to the group on day 2. It focuses on building confidence in Oral presentations skills, dealing with understanding your audience, structuring your presentation and how to use language and expression to convey your message and motivate others.
It is highly recommended that delegates also attend our PowerPoint training to further enhance their presentations.
