“Last week I attended a course the Essence of Presenting, expertly delivered by Amanda Fleming. This training is more than just how to present, it made me look deeply into places I have avoided going to in a while. Today I made a presentation that was not easy, talking about the loss of my Dad, the impact on my family and why I want my collegues to go Safely Home Every Day. Without the skills and confidence that Amanda instilled in me I would have been a blubbering, incomprehensible mess, but instead felt confident and competent. Throughly recommend to all.” Nicola Thompson EHSR Advisor
This seminar is suitable for beginners or experienced presenters as it is developmental and focuses on each presenter’s individual style rather than technical skill and rules. This presentation skills course explores the underlying causes of the common fears relating to ‘public speaking’ in a safe and non-critical environment. Although there is no compulsory part in the entire presentation skills training, participants will have opportunities to be filmed. No play-backs are done in session. Feedback suggests this program is a very safe and stimulating way to explore a traditionally challenging topic, resulting in profound shifts in confidence and competence.
The Essence of Presenting workshops are especially suitable for leaders, trainers, facilitators, sales staff and speech makers – in fact, anyone wanting more confidence, better communication skills, and a healthy self-esteem.
Our presentation skills workshops cover the following material:
- The ‘essential principles’ of presenting
- Understanding the fear response
- Becoming more confident (controlling your state) and the role of self-esteem
- The 8STEP preparation plan
- Creating and maintaining rapport
- Establishing credibility
- Self-coaching techniques
- The importance of behavioural flexibility
- Creating relevance for yourself and your material – Framing
- Going blank – what to do when you dry up
- Thriving on the unexpected – the joys of impromptu speaking
- Coaching versus criticism
- The power of presence
Participants gain greater confidence and competence ‘up front’ and discover their individual presentation style and presence. Each of our presentation skills workshops are geared towards helping you create the results you want and the confidence to communicate in any environment.
