CPD – Presentation Skills
August 22 - August 23
Very few things in life are as daunting as delivering a presentation, especially if the stakes are high. Effective presentation skills are critical in today’s business environment and can contribute significantly to both individual and business success. The ability to communicate information clearly and accurately requires training, planning and practise. Whether you plan to pitch for a new contract or make an announcement; you must get your message across clearly and as intended.
Delivering a presentation does not have to be a daunting task; it can be a lot of fun. This two-day programme is aimed at communication professionals and managers who need to add impact and confidence to their presentations. Let us help you develop the skills to put together persuasive business messages supported by well-designed and appropriate visual aids.
Participants will be given sound guidelines on each aspect of good presentations, from the preparation and research phases through the structuring of effective presentations and finally the delivery of the presentation. These will include the use of body language, voice control, managing questions, dealing with nervousness and the preparation of visual aids.
The course is interactive, fun and practical. Particular emphasis is placed on developing the delegate’s ability to apply the knowledge and to practice and hone the newly acquired skills as the workshop unfolds.
