Communicators get ideas across with enthusiasm and poise.

A presentation is one of the most important tools you have in business for getting things done. Whether you’re persuading colleagues, selling a client, energising a team or showing an idea to senior management, the power of your presentation makes the difference between success and failure.

With so much riding on your presentation ability, you won’t want to miss this opportunity to sharpen it to perfection.

The experience in this programme is as close as you can get to having a personal coach.

You begin presenting from almost the moment you walk into the class. You present at least seven times over the course of 2 days. Your presentations are videotaped and evaluated. You get expert, one-on-one coaching at the end of each presentation.

The class is small. The environment is supportive. The work is intense. The results are outstanding.

Who Should Attend?

Presentation skills training through our High-Impact Presentations programme will benefit managers who have some prior public speaking training or experience.

It is particularly useful for executives who speak in front of groups, sales people and anyone who meets the press. This is a more advanced presentation skills training seminar and is not recommended for those new to public speaking.
