Presentation Skills In House Course Agenda

Course Objectives and Content

The training is broken down into three stages: pre-presentation, during and (the important) post-presentation. Delegates will be shown techniques which, if used regularly will enhance their presentation skills and develop their confidence.

Pre- Presentation

The importance of preparation in a presentation is one of the key factors for success. We will examine the techniques which will allow the presenter a full understanding of the presentation objectives plus the needs and wants of the audience.

  • Presentation planning
  • Structuring the presentation to satisfy customer needs

During the Presentation

At this stage the presenter should be equipped with the necessary information to produce a successful presentation. The way in which the information is presented can dictate the eventual success of the proposal. The audience can be affected (positively and negatively) by the perception the presenter creates.

  • Establishing your aims and key messages
  • Adapting your styly/deliver to suit your audience
  • How to create a good first impression
  • Starting the presentation with impact and interest

  • How to ask and answer questions and maintain control
  • Credibility and influencing factors

Post Presentation

What can be measured can be controlled and improved. Structured evaluation will lead to better and more proficient future presentations. We will look at several ways to effectively assess and evaluate.

  • Presentation self analysis and evaluation
  • How to create a lasting second impression
  • Setting the scene for the future
