Course Overview

The seminar is designed for anyone who has to make a business presentation internally or externally, up or down the corporate ladder within or across different cultures. It is a highly interactive, hands-on and learner-centered programme that covers the three key components of Approach, Preparation and Delivery. It allows the participants to break through the many misconceptions concerning presentations and frees them to develop into focused communicators able to communicate their message to any particular target audience in a direct, clear and approachable manner.  Through guided feedback the participants will gain greater awareness of their strengths and be able to develop them further, thus increasing their effectiveness and professionalism.

All practical components are video recorded and played back for group, trainer and self-feedback, allowing participants to gain increased awareness of their individual styles and strengths.
