Presentation Skills Training Courses

Presentations are part of everyday business, in fact, they are part of everyday life when you think about it. Communication skills are invaluable for all aspects of business and life, whether it is a formal meeting setting virtually or face-to-face with your clients and colleagues, or maybe you are on the phone, training a colleague or doing a video; how you come across and how you communicate your message is very important. This means that how you feel about presenting, how you structure your message, body language, tone of voice, structure, and pace are all factors to think about.

Do you or your team have to give presentations, either to win new business, service existing clients or motivate your employees? And do you or your team sometimes feel nervous and unprepared or maybe if you are doing video calls you worry no one is interested in what you have to say? Then our presentation skills training is for you!

Presentation Skills Training FAQs

Presentation skills training is a broadly used term normally referring to courses or a class in which the participant(s) learn how to improve their public speaking skills and thus become better presenters.

Public speaking training or public speaking courses are similar, though when the term ‘presentation skills’ is used it is more likely to refer to a business context where professionals often have to give formal presentations in front of colleagues or clients often using visual aids such as slides. In reality, a good presentation skills training provider can help participants to improve all their communications to others and skills can even be applied to conference calls, meetings, webinars, one to ones, report writing, emails and so on.

There are many ways to improve your presentation skills and learning from an expert is the fastest and most effective way, but not the only way. The best approach is to attend presentation skills coaching or a presentation skills training course where you can learn from an experienced presenter and public speaker on how to deal with nerves, how to display good posture, how to speak at the right pace and volume, structure your communication and much, much more.

If this isn’t within reach or you prefer to self-learn then there are plenty of free resources online to help you to improve, sometimes too many. That’s why I’ve provided a handy guide to help you identify the few priority areas for you in my latest book “High-Performance Presentations”. All you need to do is take the short quiz in the book and that will point you in the direction of the areas to prioritise based on your “Presenter Personality Style”. We also have a free quiz here for you to see where you currently are!

Whatever you learn, practice and feedback is a vital step to improving. Contrary to popular belief practice doesn’t make perfect, practice makes permanent! Make sure you are practising correctly and getting feedback from someone who can present well. Getting first-hand experience in presenting to others is another good way that can help.

Effective presentation skills are those that Engage, Persuade and Inspire the audience. Whenever you speak to one or more people it could be said that you are on show – “presenting” yourself or your idea, presumably with the intention that your talk will have made some sort of difference (if not, why present?!).

To make a difference you need to do these three things, broadly in order:

Engage – you have to make the message relevant to the audience so that they begin to listen. You can force an audience to be in a room, but you cannot force them to listen and engage with your content. Considering your audience is critical to this – as I often say ‘The presentation isn’t about you, it’s about the audience!”.

Persuade – you need to have a logical flow or structure (we teach the SAS) and influential emotional stories so that you can move the audience from where they are now to where you want them to be. You need to have enough in there to overcome their objections at the right pace for them.

Inspire – Possibly the hardest part of any presentation or speech is inspiring the audience into action. In our busy world of today, there are so many things competing for attention that you’ve got to communicate in a way that makes them feel inspired to actually take action, long after the presentation has ended. That action might be launching a new product, supporting a team or approving a project.

For more information read “High-Performance Presentations – Public speaking tips and presentation skills to engage. persuade and inspire”.

Good presentations help every department across a company, it helps your clients and your suppliers too. Good presentations increase sales, profits, efficiency, customer service, internal communications and so much more. The benefits are far-reaching. We teach presentation skills that impact across all your communications.

– It’s not just about your impressions in a presentation, it’s how you come across in day to day meetings.
– It’s not just how you sound on the stage, it’s about how you speak on the phone.
– It’s not just how you structure your talk it’s how you structure all your emails, meetings, and projects.
