Writing Presentations and Presenting in Public

If you have ever had to give a public presentation, or are asked to present in public, you may feel overwhelmed and lack the confidence you need to stride on to the stage.

Presentation skills

Our two-day practical Writing and Presenting in Public course gives participants the opportunity to learn and to practice presentation skills and techniques in a safe and positive environment. We use minimum theory, maximum tips and practice, structured feedback, and video recording to ensure that participants get the most out of the time spent.

By taking the course, participants will understand what comprises effective presentations, what to do, what not to do, and will practice these skills in a safe environment. Participants walk out with confidence in themselves when presenting.
