We can help you to unleash your presentation skills; you have them, as you speak to people all the time.

What’s included in Speech Power presentation skills training?
As part of your presentation skills training, you will be taught a suite of ideas and techniques that mean successful presentations become the norm. Like anything it takes time to become excellent, speaking well doesn’t take that long. You will have the opportunity to learn how to:
- Overcome nerves
- Be more engaging
- Structure your talks
- Have greater fluency
- Be inspiring
- Own the stage
- Handle questions
- Be clearer
- Use emotions effectively.
Of course, presentation skills form the backbone of how we teach you how to deliver effective presentations. But there is also a certain magic that comes with doing, making mistakes and having success for yourself in a safe environment among peers who are all going through the same experience. This can add cohesion to organisations and expose and develop people’s leadership skills as an added bonus. Our aim in the course isn’t to create leaders, it may happen that some emerge as a natural consequence of being able to share their ideas more easily… they get noticed!
There’s an old maxim from teaching that says:
‘Nobody wants to be taught, everybody wants to be entertained’…
This maxim forms the basis of our ethos in how we approach our training with you. We use the skills we teach to engage with you to maximize your ability to absorb. Teaching you in bit size tasks that are enjoyable and easy to digest. As they say ‘We eat 5 Elephants of food in a lifetime, one bite at a time.’
