Presentation Skills Training Course that will
Boost Your Confidence in Just One Day

  • Do you have to give presentations but dislike the experience?
  • Does even thinking about presenting start making you anxious?
  • Do you avoid preparing and rehearsing because it reminds you about what’s coming? And then feel even more nervous because you’re under-prepared?
  • Do you find it difficult being the centre of attention?
  • Is all this holding you back? Frustrating you?
  • But you don’t like the idea of attending a presentation training course?

We’re Tony Burns and Olivia Mitchell from presentation training company, Effective Speaking. We’ve both been through the pain and anxiety of public speaking – and now we’re presentation trainers! We’ve designed this course specially for beginners and people who suffer from a fear of public speaking. So if you’ve never presented before, or if presenting is a nerve-wracking ordeal for you, this course is for you.

Here’s what you’ll learn on the course:

Module 1: Content Design A simple step-by-step process that lets you plan a presentation in two hours or less.

Module 2: PowerPoint Design How to create good-looking PowerPoint slides that stimulate, rather than sedate, your audience.

Module 3: Memory & Rehearsal Tricks Proven techniques to help you build your confidence.

Throughout the day you will practice delivering the presentation you design – this will boost your delivery skills and confidence.

“I expected the course to be stressful and to find it difficult to be positive about the subject. OK – I was actually dreading it! However I found the day to be enjoyable, interesting and engaging – way better than I expected..”
