Workshop

Who Should Attend?

Companies often win business following a presentation to the most senior decision-makers in the market.

Talking Presentations is therefore particularly appropriate for Directors, Executives and Senior Managers who need to ‘deliver’ in these crucial presentation situations.

This powerful two-day workshop will take your public speaking, presentation and communication skills to a new level. We equip you with our simple, clear and proven strategies to professionally influence your audiences; large or small. Our interactive training enables you to clearly communicate your message ‘on your feet’. Our invigorating coaching empowers you with the self-confidence to deliver truly inspiring presentations!

Non-Verbal Communication

Over 90% of the successful delivery of every message is created by non-verbal communication such as gesticulation, body posture, voice modulation, intonation, pausing, pacing, facial expressions and eye contact. In order to achieve the desired effect and impact, it is important that presenters master these non-verbal communication skills.

A vital element of the course is providing participants with the non-verbal communication tools and techniques of world-class presenters, as well as helping them to become self-aware of the positive impact of their own body language. Over the two days, they develop their own style to ensure their communication generates the desired effect.
