About this Presentation Skills Training 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!

Training course had a productive outcome with structure which went a long way to meet Leyton’s specific needs. Good balance between detail and overview. The trainer's presentation was clear and enabled development of team's input. Good communication with audience. Kept our attention.

Presentation Skills Training - Day One - AM

What is communication? A presenter needs to transfer information, positive emotions

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

This was my first management course. I found the course to contain excellent content and showed me the importance of positive mental thinking and having good planning and communications skills.

The Course 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!
