It’s possible you have read books about presenting or used google to find tips about presentations. You can find plenty of information. It is quite a hot topic.
Unfortunately you can’t learn how to present by reading books or websites. It is like playing tennis, you can read a hundred books and analyze all the top players on TV, but unless you go onto the court yourself and practise, you’re not likely to win Wimbledon. (nor the local competition.)
Presenting is about skills. Do you want your team to improve their presentation skills? If so it is important that they don’t only learn the theory, but also that they make their flying hours. It is about getting in front of the group and practising repeatedly. At the same time, it is important that there is an expert at their side, supporting them and telling them what works for them, what makes them present in a better and more effective way.
In short: do you want your team to present in a better way, then only the combination of training and practise can make this happen.
Our training is unique because the participants are not only assisted by a trainer but also a coach.
The personal presentation coaching, that the participants receive every day is not an unnecessary luxury, it is the secret that will make professional presenters out of them in only a few days.
The quality of this training course exceeded my expectations. I have been given new insights and many practical tips both for preparing a presentation as well as the presentation itself.

Sometimes you get the chance to give a presentation and there is a lot depending on it. That one presentation that needs to be 100% spot on! You don’t want to leave anything to chance. If this is your case, choose for individual coaching.
Together with your coach you will take several steps:
Together you will brainstorm about what your wish to say and what has to be told during your presentation.
After that you will determine what the goal of your presentation is and you will do an analysis of the audience. This will give you focus in choosing what and what not to say during your presentation.
The next step is the structure and a storyboard. Within this element, main and subsidiary issues are seperated and your presentation will be made into a gripping and coherent story.
If necessary a PowerPoint will be made to support your presentation.
You will practise your final presentation for as long as necessary for you to own it completely.
1 to 1 coaching
You will take every step together with your coach to reach an optimal result. Your presentation will be rock solid and make an impression on your audience.
The coaching is very good. In a one to one setting, we looked at my goals. This improved my presentations and has helped my own development enormously.
