Course description

Our Presentation Skills course focuses on planning and preparing the content of your presentation, as well as receiving feedback on your delivery style. Participants will be required to deliver two presentations to others attending the course, the first on day one, the second on day two.

Is it right for me?

This confidence-building course is designed for people with little or no previous experience, and provides a safe environment for practice. Participant numbers are deliberately kept to a minimum for this purpose.

What will I get out of it?

By the end of the course you will be able to:

  • Give presentations with greater confidence and effectiveness
  • Use  a  systematic  approach  to  planning  and preparing a presentation

Our trainer was excellent, pitched at the right level and kept the presentation style informal.
