Course Overview

The clock is ticking; in a very short while you are committed to standing up and addressing the meeting, speaking in public about your business or giving that long awaited presentation. How confident are you feeling? How comfortable are you in communicating with authority?

Hopefully you will be sat there raring to go, ready to get in front of your audience. Or, like more people than you would perhaps have thought, you would actually rather sit this one out, preferring it to quietly go away.

Unfortunately, these opportunities don’t just go away if we leave them and funnily enough present themselves more frequently. As senior management it can’t be under estimated how important it is that you are able to not only step in and handle these situations, but to maximise the opportunity and portray the best image of yourself as a representative of your firm.

We have all witnessed presentations and speeches where the speaker is either too nervous to engage their audience, or loves the sound of their own voice so much that they talk none stop and drown out the very message they are there to deliver.

Attending this course will enable you to:

  • Build your confidence in public speaking through a practical and interactive workshop.
  • Learn a variety of techniques to help you stand up and deliver clear and engaging messages for any situation that would require it.
  • Acquire practical skills to ensure you are communicating in an authoritative manner when delivering important messages to either clients or staff.

Techniques and tips that can be implemented straight after the session to improve your public speaking.

Why is it important to be an effective public speaker in business?

This training is all about making sure that as a senior manager you are able to present effectively to colleagues and clients.
