Please note we are currently re-designing our courses. The information on this page provides only a generalised overview.
Our courses are primarily for business people at all managerial and executive levels, though they can and have been successfully provided to other staff, performance artists and individuals. These are currently run online only. We normally also offer face-to-face courses.
All courses are designed as one-to-one; tailored to meet the needs of the individual concerned. Having said that, both Voice Coaching and Presentation Skills can be run as small groups at the introductory level.
Business English for non-native English Speakers is only offered on a one-to-one basis as this has to be aligned with the individual being trained, their knowledge and rate of progress.
Presentation SkillsFor many people the idea of presenting is daunting. Simply standing in front of an audience - no matter what size - can be scary. However, the fact is we are presenting all the time. Every meeting, every phone call, every chat in an office corridor, every Zoom or Skype call (It can be argued that when working online, presentation skills are even more in important in getting your message across). So if we can handle these ones OK, how come we have difficulty with a formal presentation? Preparedness and confidence, or rather a lack of them, are usually the main reasons. And with preparedness, comes confidence.
Level 1 - IntroductionIn our introductory three and a half hour course, we first get to know your presenting skills via you creating a short presentation and then giving it. We then take you through:
- the fundamentals of putting your presentation together - whether PowerPoint, whiteboard, flip chart. And whether face to face or online.
- order and layout
- winning content
- the principles of presenting
- working the audience
