First Presentation Skills - 1 Day In-House Workshop

This highly supportive one day in-house workshop has been designed to help people who have never presented before overcome their fear of presenting and public speaking.

It is also an excellent course for those who have presented very occasionally in the past but are still extremely nervous about this and try to avoid presenting at all costs.

By taking part in a number of practical exercises throughout the day, delegates will progressively build up their self confidence during the workshop. They will also learn to plan, structure and deliver their first presentation in front of an audience. Key skills and techniques are developed in an informal, risk free environment. Personal feedback is an essential element of the training and each participant will receive plenty of individual coaching during the day.

  • Have taken the first steps to become a good presenter
