We all want to give interesting, effective and memorable presentations. Your main objective as a presenter is to deliver a message. Your presentation is your pitch. To deliver that pitch perfectly, you need to borrow from a variety of fields; psychology, art & design, IT, politics and of course your own domain which is the subject of the presentation.
To deliver a great presentation you must use all of these domains, which means you must master the following:
Understand the psychology of your audience and prepare your message accordingly to appeal to their emotions and get maximum results.
Create a “wow” factor by using the latest IT tools and technology to put your ideas together and organise your content.
Appeal to the artistic side of your audience and design your presentation to look professional.
Deliver with confidence to show that you understand your own content and appear convincing.
Leave a long lasting positive effect on your audience so that they would never forget your message.
This course covers all of the above areas by using a variety of interactive and practical exercises which prepare the delegates for their ultimate presentation. This course explores the latest methodologies used in delivering presentations. In our experience, there are two types of delegates:
In experienced or new. This course teaches the delegates how to gather their content, how to make their slides (if any is needed), how to deliver and how to make their message stand out from others.
With experience. Experienced presenters suffer from bad habits accumulated over time and also lack of knowledge of new tools and techniques since they picked up the knowledge years ago. This course helps these delegates to master the skill through many hands on exercises so they can leverage their current experience to polish their presentations and deliver as good as they are capable of.
The course focuses on the latest practices in presentation skills especially in business and academic environments. Much has changed in recent years and the ever increasing range of presentation tools and their respective feature-set has allowed many presenters to fall into the trap of feature overuse. To address these issues, the course covers a set of best design practices so delegates know what to avoid both during the preparation and delivery of their presentations.
The best way to learn is by example, therefore many visual examples of good and bad content are provided which help the delegates to quickly understand what works and what does not.
The course contains a pre-course assignment where delegates need to prepare a presentation. During the course, they will learn how to improve their presentation and at the end, they will deliver this presentation once more to be evaluated based on a set of performance criteria. Instructions and forms are provided in the classes package.
In this highly practical course participants will learn:
What not to do during presentations which may undermine you or your message?
