Powerful Presentations

Two day programme

What Our Customers said…..

‘For me the most useful section was… Overcoming nervousness and gaining confidence, …learning how to hold the attention of an audience, how to structure and organise a speech.’

‘The course helps with outlining your ideas and how you are going to present them.’

Are these some of your problems –

  • Nervousness?
  • Speaking too quickly or too quietly?
  • To use or not to use notes?
  • Organising content to make an impact?
  • Boring the audience?
  • Knowing what visual aids to use and how to use them?

This programme will help you find solutions to these and other problems you may have.
