Giving a presentation can be both scary and overwhelming. However, almost everyone will have to give a presentation at some point during his or her career.

Our 2 day Presentation Skills course will give you the tools and techniques you need to prepare, practice and deliver impactful presentations to any audience. As well as learning what you should do - you will about the most common presentation pitfalls and how you can avoid them.

This is a highly practical course and our tutor will work with you throughout, to develop the necessary skills through a series of presentations, activities and coursework. During the programme the tutor will video each participant, and provide constructive feedback on each individual presentation. This not only allows you to fine-tune your content and delivery, but also boosts confidence and decreases the fear around presenting.

The course also includes two one to one personal coaching sessions within the body of the two days where the tutor will put a particular emphasis on tackling performance anxiety.
