Presentation skills


Two day course that teaches effective presentation skills.


Improve confidence to prepare and present informative and persuading presentations by developing key presentation skills.

Presentations can be delivered to any number of people and on any topic, but the key to delivering a good presentation in engaging your audience. To do this you must feel confident and prepared before giving the presentation, having considered your objectives and your audience and how to build a rapport with them. During the presentation you must be prepared for a range of things such as delivering on schedule, audience management (people not paying attention or asking difficult questions) and equipment failure (projector or microphone not working).

This workshop covers the essential presentation skills you need to effectively plan a presentation, including overview of content and visual aids. It also includes practical exercises to help you improve your presentation delivery with the opportunity to practice and receive feedback throughout the course.
