The Essence of Presenting - In House
More confidence AND competence 'up front'
In classical Greek times, when Cicero had finished speaking,
the people said, "How well he spoke",
but when Demosthenes had finished speaking,
"Let us march!"
This New Zealand In-House presentation skills workshop is suitable
for beginners and experienced presenters and public speakers.
It is principles-based and applies a personal development methodology that
brings a fresh and highly stimulating approach to what is traditionally a very challenging topic.
My approach focuses on bringing forward each presenter’s individual style
(rather than technical skill, great slides, and presenting 'rules').
It's all about keeping it real.
We explore the underlying causes of the common fears relating to ‘public speaking’,
and hone our skills in a safe and non-critical environment.
Over the past 30 years I have helped thousands of presenters
learn to enjoy being 'up front' and thrive on being their effective, authentic selves.
"This course changed my life ... I wouldn't have been able to lecture at University without it.
The greatest of fears dissolved into a feeling of excitement, acceptance and ease."
Debbie Harwood - Artist/Lecturer
Who is this workshop for? What will be covered?
Essence of Presenting workshops are especially suitable for 'non-conformists':
NOTE: Participating as a functional team has many added benefits. The Essence of Presenting becomes a deep dive Team Development workshop with all that goes with that. The subject matter makes it as challenging (if not more so) than doing ropes courses, and building rafts...
"This course really resonated with me.
It was fun, thought-provoking, challenging and refreshing.
I'm still buzzing, it was bloody marvellous - you are a treasure!!"
Mary Hay (Consultation Leader - Christchurch City Council)
All participants have the opportunity to actively practice
during the workshop
The nature of this work is highly experiential.
“I would like to let you know how truly inspiring this course is. I am amazed how much I have learned both on a personal level and as a public speaker in this short space of time and will go as far as to say that it is the best workshop I have ever been to!! The ingredients of this workshop will aid me in connecting with my clients and in creating opportunities when speaking to employers. The fear of public speaking has given way to a strong belief in myself, and what I do. This has a lot to do with Amanda's style, integrity and course design. She is awe-inspiring and challenges us to be the best we can be, connect with people and serve their needs. I highly recommend this course to all our employment consultants, team leaders and management.”

“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 colleagues 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.”
