Why study this course

Delivering a brilliant, memorable, and interactive presentation requires a number of skills including effective planning, choosing the right delivery method(s), developing outstanding customised content, professional group facilitation, the efficient use of technology, effective communication skills, and more.

Good information, great ideas, or the best of intentions only gets you halfway there. Persuasive presentations start with raw information, then opinions are added and enhanced with creative imagery and given personality by the presenter. The more of the mind you tickle, the more retention and motivation you reap.

This two-day course provides you with in-depth knowledge and skills in the planning, preparation, and delivery of truly engaging presentations. You'll learn how to use specific tools and techniques for presentation creation and delivery, which will enable you to conduct powerful presentations that engage your audience every time.

As part of this course, you will have an opportunity to develop and present to your peers and receive feedback from the group.

This course is delivered in partnership with PD Training.
