Communication - Spoken
Presentation Essentials

In today’s highly competitive and fast paced business environment, it is essential to communicate effectively – be it to internal or external clients, local or international clients or up or down the corporate ladder. It is for this reason that this two-day Presentation Skills seminar is highly interactive and learner-centric, encompassing training, discussion and practice.

The aim is to aid participants in developing and perfecting their skills, enabling them to communicate their ideas in a clear, concise, confident and professional manner. It will also equip them with the tools to approach this important aspect of their work more confidently.

The modern presenter presents effectively. They are well prepared and focused on getting their point across, ensuring that time is not wasted. The presentation is relevant and tailored to their particular target audience. The audience receives, understands and remembers the message that is delivered.

This programme is designed for people wanting practical training, whether they are experienced presenters who want to refresh their core skills or for those wishing to learn how to be an effective, confident, dynamic professional presenter.
