Presentation skills: first steps

You have one chance to get it right - we've got your back.

What do we do?

We build your competence on stage or screen

You or your client have a conference or keynote speech coming up – or perhaps they’ve been asked to MC an event. You want to be at your best in terms of content, delivery and body language – of course you do! You might have no experience, intermediary experience or loads of experience and just want a polish.

We can help on a number of levels. Our introductory session features one of us putting you through your paces, evaluating your skills as they are and building on confidence, structure of an event or keynote and how best to deliver it. We look at the basics including how to make the most of the AV team, the equipment you might be coming across, how to hook attention, vocal projection (clue: don’t try to project, you’ll get a sore throat, sound resonates rather than projects), some frequent mistakes in software presentations using established packages and how to ensure slides support you rather than act as notes.

Our promises to you

What is included

  • A tailored presentation training course run at your premises or at a board room we can arrange – before the session we will discuss what you need, whether you have any experience and take it from there
  • Your objectives and pain points addressed
  • A trainer with over a decade of experience coaching press spokespeople and almost three decades in the media – a current journalist rather than someone who’s done this in the past
  • An experienced camera technician (optional) in the room offering proper feedback and immediate playback in a professional studio environment (also optional!)
