For those who've already been on our (or other) presentation skills course or have reached an intermediate skill level through experience and want to lift their presentations to the next level. Delegates will, in particular, get to explore the use of storytelling (narrative) as a way of engaging their audience in a powerful and compelling way.

Our advanced level courses are carefully tailored to the individual needs of delegates (although you'll appreciate this is harder to do on an open workshop where participants come from a range of different organisations). We ask you to come prepared with an existing presentation - one that you've already given and would like to improve or one you've yet to deliver and want to practice. We then "workshop" these presentations so that the day can be practical and productive rather than abstract and theoretical. 

We record your presentations for feedback which is delivered on the day and, where requested, after the event and as a result you'll gain experience and confidence using microphones under the spotlights. Deconstructing these presentations will give the group the chance to develop their:

  • Storytelling - the power of narrative to engage and persaude;
  • Spoken language - why some words are more powerful than others;
  • Body language - how to get all channels of communication in sync;
  • Choreography - the importance of commanding the physical space in which your presentation is being given;
  • Audience interaction - why involving the audience is the key to success;
  • Paraverbal langauge - ways to improve your pace, tone and rhythm;
  • Call to action - making your desired outcome more likely;
  • Q and A handling  - avoiding the pitfalls of the audience awkward squad;
  • Opening and closing - the importance of an engaging opening and a compelling close.

Our presentation courses are led by Richard Uridge. As a broadcaster he's well used (but still nervous!) presenting to audiences of thousands or even millions. He's a skilled, passionate and engaging storyteller and some of that enthusiasm and knowledge will rub off on you.

This workshop is available for in-house delivery which is cost effective if you've got more than a few people who need training with the added advantage that course content can be tailored to your specific organisational needs. Contact the trainer to discuss your requirements.
