Random Customer Review

The course content was great and contextual. Some of it I have covered before, but elements were new, such as the method of conflict resolution was easier to remember. The trainer gave lots of examples and was a good trainer as he kept me engaged.

About the Course

Some people hate making presentations. They find it nerve-wracking.

But there are times, when you need to make presentations. You need to present information, ideas or proposals to other people.

Currently, you may not feel confident to stand up and present yourself in such a setting. But you are required to do so, and you are expected to be good.

This course therefore is designed to help you to master yourself and your material, so that your presentations are regarded as well structured, persuasive, and even inspirational!

Course Overview

The popular course will help you:

  • Notes to improve on your content
  • Notes to improve on your voice tones
  • Notes to improve on your body language

Presentation Skills - Confident Speaking Course Content

Presentation Skills AM

What is communication?

Communication is defined as "a transfer of information and emotion from one mind to another."

As a presenter, you need to transfer your information into the minds of others.

That means you need to transfer your:

  • Facts
  • Figures
  • Proposals
  • Ideas
  • Products
  • Services
  • Recommendations

Into the minds of others, without any loss of meaning or any misunderstanding. This means that you need to prepare your message in advance.

As a presenter you need to transfer your positive emotions:

Confidence in your message
Confidence in yourself
Enthusiasm
Motivation

As a presenter you need to NOT transfer any negative emotions:

You need to appear NOT to be:
Anxious
Doubtful
Fearful
Self-conscious

There are three major channels of communication

The three channels are words, tones, and body language.

  • Words = What you say
  • Tone = How you sound
  • Body language = How you look

Words = What you say

Your words communicate your explicit content.

It is vital that you prepare your content.

  • Prepare your content by sorting it into categories
  • Put the categories into the right order
  • Limit the amount
  • Make your key points obvious

Presentation Skills PM

Voice tones

Your voice tones are the musical elements of your communication.

Your voice tones are about your:

  • Pace
  • Pitch
  • Volume
  • Rhythm
  • Accent (Dialect)
  • The Sound of Silence

Body language

Your body language is your visual impact: How you look to your audience.

Your body language has a big impact on the mind of your listeners.

Your body language includes things such as your:

  • Posture
  • Appearance
  • Facial expression
  • Hand gestures
  • Arm gestures
  • Whether you move about or not?
  • Visual aids

How to handle nerves and build more confidence

Here is how to manage your nerves:

Remember that the audience does not know how you feel unless you tell them.
Act confidently; even if you don’t feel it.

Focus your mind on delivering the message:
Do NOT focus on yourself or how your audience is reacting to you.
If you are feeling nervous, then consciously slow down your pace, stand up straighter; and speak slightly louder. Then nobody will ever know how you are feeling.

We don't mind if you are nervous: so long as you keep going!

The more presentation you do, the easier it gets.

Practice sessions

Delegates learn by doing.

Feedback and advice.

Action planning

The Training Method

The training method follows this general pattern - the training is very interactive and interesting:

  1. The trainer gives a clear explanation of the point in question with specific examples.
  2. Then, the delegates practice by doing an exercise with each other.
  3. The delegates practice by doing an exercise with the trainer.
  4. All points are supported with full written notes to take away.
  5. Delegates are asked to write down an associated action, for each point made.
    (At the end of the day, we have about twenty such actions, from which the delegates choose six which are the most personally meaningful).

Note: we do not believe in placing people in any situation of embarrassment by demanding that they 'perform' in front of the whole group. So you can relax: come on this course and be at ease; ready to learn new skills!

The course content was structurally well organised and had a good set of exercises, the training manual was easy to read and understand. The trainer's presentation was engaging and interactive. The audience felt involved and I learnt some new techniques.
