Corporate Training

We can deliver a full day or half-day presentation training workshop for your company focusing on topics you would like us to cover.

Choose eight topics from the following list for a full day’s training or four topics for a half-day workshop.

Each module lasts about 45 minutes.

We can also build in opportunities for executives to deliver their own presentations and have them professionally evaluated if desired.

List of Topics:

1. Building a winning structure for your presentation
We will share with you the techniques necessary to structure your presentation to get you from a blank sheet of paper to a fully blown speech or presentation. In this session we will cover the importance of an effective opening and powerful closing and describe how to build a structure to develop the heart of your speech.

2. Top tips for giving a speech or presentation 
We will walk you through everything you need to do to make your speech or presentation successful, with a checklist for preparing in advance, how to deal with unexpected issues that arise and the importance of post-speech and presentation contact.

3. How to manage nerves and tackle stage fright
Even the most seasoned speakers are nervous before a big presentation. We will teach you some tried and tested tips and techniques to manage your nerves so you can concentrate on delivering your speech or presentation.

4. Creating and delivering memorable sales presentations 
You will learn in this session how to make memorable sales presentations and how to tailor your approach during a sales process, leaving business or sponsorship pitches with the winning result.

5. Thinking on Your Feet
In this session we will focus on impromptu speaking or speaking off-the-cuff and explain how to be spot-on with your performance when given a short time or no time at all to prepare.

6. Clear and Effective Delivery
One of the keys to making your presentations more memorable is how you deliver your message. You will learn in this session some techniques to improve your performance, some exercises to help improve your vocal projection and we will encourage you to vary your voice, including pausing, to emphasise effectively your key messages.

7. How to add humour to your presentations
We will advise you when and how to add appropriate and well-judged humour as a powerful tool to sell your message and deliver your presentation in a more memorable style.

8. Designing persuasive PowerPoint presentations
Giving an effective PowerPoint presentation requires preparation and skill.  Learn in this session how to deliver a knockout business presentation using PowerPoint.

9. Message development for your speech
We will explain the process of developing key messages for your speech or presentation and suggest how best to structure those ideas to help the audience remember what you said.

10. Connecting with the Audience
Whether you are presenting to a small group of 20 or a large group of 200, we will walk you through the many tactics you can use in advance to ensure that your presentation achieves the desired response.

11. Different Styles for different presentations
You may be delivering an elevator pitch at a networking event, pitching your services during a sales call, or speaking at a small business conference. We will steer you safely through these very different types of presentations.

12. Using Developing Technologies in your presentations
Learn about the suitability of prezie, powtoon, Haiku Deck and more and discover what you need to remember if you are presenting a webinar on Skype or via video conferencing.

13. Running effective meetings and building group consensus
We will teach you how to plan, participate in and run effective meetings that use time wisely and achieve their objectives. Discover how to build consensus in a meeting even where there appears to be significant disagreement.

14. Positively engaging with the media
Learn how you can generate media coverage for your organisation from your presentations through some simple, replicable techniques. And discover the importance of staying on message. We emphasise how everything from your talking points for an interview, to the slogans on your banner, to the visuals you create for an event, should all align to support your core messages.
