You’re speaking, but are you being heard?
Gain knowledge and skills in how to present and communicate effectively.
Leadership Communication: Presenting your ideas
Workshop: Presenting Your Ideas is about how to enrol clients, teams, and groups in what you say is possible.
You're speaking but are you being heard?
Few people want to be on the receiving end of most presentations. Few want to be spoken at with a slide show.
But in getting your ideas out there, and communicating the need for change, effective presentation can enable you to connect with your audience and the unseen audience beyond, it to ignite stakeholder progress toward what you see is possible.
In this interactive workshop you will learn how to communicate naturally with groups, teams, and audiences, and inspire them.
This workshop will enable you to:
Identify what your audience wants (and also needs) to hear
Structure your talk to deliver it with impact
Practice effectively before, and at the venue
Manage your nerves and anxieties
Warm up your audience - before you go on
Speak authoritatively without knowing it all
Handle questions and experts
Speak without notes (but with notes)
Manage your posture, voice, and position on the podium
Manage your eye contact, hands and . . . . . . . . . . . (silence)
Handle slides and the screen
Be completely present to your audience.
This workshop is for you if you:
Lead or manage a team
Lead your firm or organisation
Face or manage clients or customers
Face prospective clients or participate in sales meetings
Communicate Human Resource policy, investment research, or regulation.
You will learn that the best technique is to drop all techniques.
You will address what your audience wants to hear and what it needs to hear.
You will learn that it's less about what you say than about how you listen.
You will learn never to give a presentation but rather to intend to talk with people.

“Christopher was very engaging and in such a short period of time has dispelled years of nerves. Whilst only early in my career, he has given me a lifelong tool that I can use in focusing on ‘being present’. His interactive session pushed me out of my comfort zone but empowered me to strive forward.”
What our clients say...
“An excellent presentation which debunked the mystery surrounding a successful presentation and distilled the preparation required into a small number of straightforward techniques”
