Before the training I was a little sceptical – I’d been on a lot of courses and wasn’t sure what else I needed to learn. I thought it would be a breeze. I can safely Dee put me through my paces and I really appreciate that! It is now 5 weeks since our in-house presentation skills training course and I have given 2 significant presentations with great results. One of the presentations was to a major customer and the feedback was that she “really she loved it”. I came out of the meeting absolutely buzzing and felt it couldn’t have gone better, it was really interactive and we’ve since secured a diary slot with them to present every month.
I’ve been using the techniques we practised not only for presentations but for my general workload when I’m planning a project and scoping out work. To be honest the structure is one of the most useful things I’ve ever taken on from a training! I’ve also found it saves a lot of work as well because by using your approach it really helps me to see if I need to do this or that and focus on the important things – it’s become part of my working life. I’ve also improved my slides: I use visuals not boring bullet points now. I’m able to encourage interaction easily and keep the presentation on track.
