Present with Confidence

As a Director, HR professional or Manager, you know that it is key for your teams to be able to communicate well at internal team meetings, to external clients and suppliers, or to give a virtual project update presentations. You need them to be able to give clear, concise and confident presentations. Our presentations skills training courses will give them the confidence to do just that – and enable them to engage and interact with varied audiences online and off (watch our video testimonials).

How can participants learn?

Working with a highly experienced trainer (either in person or virtually), in this tailored public speaking course your team will be coached into delivering clear and confident presentations.

Where can your teams apply their new skills?

Business presentations online and off e.g. boardroom presentations, pitching internal ideas, webinars, technical presentations, conference presentations, customer proposals and sales presentations, internal meetings, investment pitches, keynote speeches and more… Participants will learn the principles of virtual presenting and for in-depth training on the subject, see our Virtual Presenting course.

How does the programme work?

Choose between face to face or virtual training for between 2-6 delegates (For larger delegate numbers see our webinar training options).

  • Face to face: 1 day (Including all Parts 1-5)
  • Virtual: 4 x 90-minute live and interactive webinar training (Including all Parts 1-5)
  • 1 post training video review per participant with feedback from trainer
  • Workbooks, exercises, video practise and materials to support and embed learning
  • Delegates will receive the book High-Performance Presentations by Dee Clayton, which will enable them to learn more on the themes, plus supporting materials.

Optional extras: Ideal for face to face and virtual learners (Part 6): live post-training reviews via web calls.

Choose from either:

  • 1 x team session where peers and the trainer review delivery of each final presentation
  • Or for more individual and focused support, a one to one video call per participant with the trainer
  • Depending on participant numbers, the format of live reviews will be tailored accordingly

By the end of the course, your team will be able to:

  • Feel less nervous and be able to focus on their audience rather than themselves
  • Use breathing and mindset techniques to have a greater sense of calm and control
  • Enhance their body language and voices to demonstrate executive presence
  • Prevent distractions and banish bad habits in their body language, voice or breathing
  • Deliver with confidence, knowing they’ve had practice time and constructive feedback
  • Create clear slides instead of a ‘script on a screen’
  • Keep improving, know what to practise and the quick wins to prioritise.

Here’s the course breakdown:

Part 1 – Where are the most important areas for development?

Delegates will complete a short quiz and answer self-reflective questions in the ‘Styles, Strengths and Weaknesses’ workbook (hard copy or e-version available). This allows the participants to identify their areas for development and means the trainer can tailor the materials to your team’s needs.

Participants will be asked to film themselves (optional) giving a short presentation meaning the trainer can check they concur with the participant’s self-analysis and inform their next steps.

Part 2 – How does a negative or positive state of mind impact performance?

We help delegates to identify which mindsets are necessary to be a calm, confident and clear presenter and which have an adverse effect. Your team will learn techniques and exercises that are designed to change negative worries into more positive and useful thoughts. We help participants overcome common concerns they have running around in their minds such as hating the feeling of “all eyes are on me” to thinking “they are all judging me”.

Part 3 – Why is good body language so important online and off?

Now we study body language and find out how to show presence, poise and passion. Your team will learn and practise standing and seated ‘Presenter Stance’, what to do with their hands, and when and where to look.

Part 4 – How does breathing impact the voice?

The trainer will listen to the different voices and watch the participant’s breathing to see what can be improved. Your team will learn the importance of breathing and voice exercises and the role they play in making you not only clear but also calm and confident too. Then they will practise speaking with a new-found quality, confidence and clarity.

Part 5 – How can you avoid death by PowerPoint or conference call fatigue?

The trainer will show your team how to make their message clear and simple, so they can avoid having hundreds of text heavy slides and easily remember what to say. No more mind blank moments! This will make it easier for the audience to engage, understand and remember your message.

Whether participants are doing the virtual or in person face to face training, they will each be invited to show what they’ve learnt throughout the programme in a short finale review video. Your trainer will provide constructive feedback for each participant and highlight next steps.

Part 6 – Practise and next steps 60-minute live review

This section is an optional extra, but we highly recommend it. This is where it all comes together – time for your team to practice and embed everything they’ve learnt! Participants will deliver their presentation in a live web call to the trainer who will give constructive feedback on the delivery of the presentation. Knowing that they can practise all the techniques learnt will give participants one final confidence boost. And they’ll leave with a detailed plan of their next steps so they can continue to improve even after the course has finished.

Feedback from previous delegates

“The training has helped with my calmness and breathing What I like most was the live feedback. The training will enhance my frequent presentations on the job. Highly recommend this to others.”
Alfie – Senior Bid Development Manager

“It pushed me out of my comfort zone, but not too far, I felt empowered to stand up and talk, not forced to. I believe in myself more and at least have body language to appear confident. Looking forward to what’s to come with rest of training” [Stages 2 & 3]
Abigail – Executive Assistant

“I know what to do with my body language, how to be clear with my voice and how to make my message simpler. I’ll use this when presenting to the management team and externally. Definitely recommend this to others”

Anxious or stage fright when presenting?

Dee’s presentation skills course was excellently received by the team. Every person who attended said they saw a huge difference in themselves and each other from the start of day 1 to the end of day 2. Dee’s 4MAT structure has also been hugely beneficial and is being used across the team, resulting in more concise presentations. Would highly recommend.

Before I worked with Simply Amazing Training, even the thought of presenting made me suffer from panic attacks and made me feel physically unwell. During the mindset mentoring session we uncovered the “monkeys” as Dee calls them, that were causing the issues and I learnt how to turn them into more positive thoughts instead. In another session, I learnt the tricks on the structure and preparing a presentation which gave me lots of practice which was just as well because only a few weeks later I presented at an all company conference … I felt so much better about it than I ever have before – my monkeys were under control.

I must say that making that first contact was a big step for me and I am extremely pleased with the outcome. The course is very well structured and the techniques learnt invaluable in addressing public speaking fears. We developed a good 1:1 relationship quickly. I no longer shy away from opportunities to run meetings and present updates, in fact, I have since done several types of presentations with great success. I have made a big step forward and I feel so much happier and better within myself. I am about to change role and it was my increased confidence gained from this course that gave me the impetus to seek out a different opportunity.

Director – UK Consumer and Corporate bank

I decided I wanted to do motivational speaking, [The course] taught me how to structure a talk, what was my ethos, what I believed in, what were my core priorities in a talk … the things I needed to change I’ve changed … I’m happy with my talk. I thought it was full of energy, the reaction from the crowd was good [and I included] some of the key points suggested to help me so I’ve got no complaints. My confidence in how to structure a talk, how to be a speaker has grown and that’s just been working one to one.

After the Pro training, I felt very much happier, more confident and enthusiastic about my presentations. I know how to prepare and structure presentations. I know I can present well because I know how to adapt my message to what the audience wants. I now use less unnecessary hand gestures [and when I do use my hands it is for more meaningful gestures]. I am speaking more slowly and pausing more regularly [hence] less stuttering. I really liked the immediate feedback correcting me instantly.

Richard Lee – Entrepreneur, Reporter at Sky
and Performance Coach

The mindset course on ‘monkey taming’ is brilliant. For the first time, I was able to dedicate time to thinking about the things that were holding me back. The techniques and style make the ‘monkey taming’ process simple and effective, and allowed me to change my mindset.

In the Pro session, we worked on a presentation that I was to deliver at a big industry event – understanding how to get the key messages out, connect with the audience better and ultimately feel more at home ‘on stage’. I was extremely happy with my delivery and received some excellent feedback from the delegates at the conference.

Most presentation courses you come away thinking “that was great” and then forget it all… this one changes you, for the better, forever.

10/10 Better presentations! After seeing Dee speak at our annual conference I decided to sign up to her public speaking coaching lessons. I was not as confident as I’d liked to have been about preparing and delivering presentations. We tamed my ‘public speaking monkeys’ (as Dee calls them) and learnt advanced skills. Her unique approach really worked. I now feel much more confident, prepared and deliver clearer presentations. Highly recommended!

Operations Director – UK Serviced Offices Group

I took these programmes shortly before speaking at our annual conference and I had never spoken in public before. During the trainings, I learnt posture, better storytelling and how to speak with more pauses and less “ums”. We learnt how to present without even using PowerPoint and to easily remember what to say. Following the courses, I feel so much more prepared and clear and a lot less nervous. The conference talk went really well and everyone praised me on how well I’d done – I remembered everything I wanted to say without any slides at all.
