The workshop was perfectly pitched. Every step felt achievable yet at the start of the day I wouldn't have thought I could have done what I did by the end.
Fantastic workshop, engaging from start to finish, I really enjoyed it!
Just written up my reflections from today and my notes are absolute gold! Thank you thank you. Would recommend you to anyone.
Learn the secrets to influencing an audience, gain the confidence you need to present in front of big groups and find out a bunch of practical tips to put together better slide decks.
About a year ago I set out to talk to singers, comedians, actors, world class presenters and psychologists to find out what made a presentation great. I've had coaching from some of the best in the business and been through a number of different courses.
All of this learning has been distilled down into a one day course to help a small bunch of people improve their presentation skills.
It's not just for people who want to present at conferences either. If you have to present to a group of people, either for external sales or internally, this workshop will help you too.
Best of all, you'll be raising money for Barnardo's too as profits from this event will be donated to their work with refugees in Northern Ireland. Read on to find out more.
