This course combines the perfect balance of theory with practical presentation techniques over 1 day resulting in a comprehensive training course giving participants the skills required to deliver effective presentations in a clear, concise and confident manner.

This is a 1 Day programme. 


This course will help the participant understand presentation techniques and how to effectively use various “spices” to enhance their presentation. A practical hands-on approach is taken, allowing participants to practice and deliver their presentations a number of times throughout the day.  At the end of the day each participant’s presentation is recorded and feedback will be offered.

Anyone who would like to improve their Presentation Skills – previous experience is not a pre-requisite.


Participants should come to the course with a presentation topic in mind.  When choosing your topic, bear in mind that initially you will build your presentation around your chosen topic and deliver it at the end of day one.  Therefore, it should be a topic that you are familiar with and one that you would be comfortable speaking on.  It can, but does not have to be work related.
