What You Will Learn

In our presentation skills course, it is the participants in the room on the day who get to choose the topics they want to cover. This ensures everyone gets the most from their presentation skills course.

Whether you are nervous wreck or extremely confident, being able to deliver a competent presentation is a key piece of business acumen. Small changes to your presentation skills can have a huge impact on your audience. For many people, the thought of giving a presentation fills them with dread. You might not learn to love speaking in front of people, but we can make it easier for you when you have to.

This presentation skills training is aimed at beginner to intermediate level presenters. You should have some experience presenting in order to get the most out of this.

Participants can even take home their before and after videos to record on their own device if they would like to do so.

Course requirements:

Please bring your laptop or tablet, along with any adaptors required to project your slides, to your presentation skills training. Please also bring a device with video recording capabilities. We do recommend you have an upcoming presentation planned so you can practice your enhanced skills as soon as possible.

The Polished Presenter was developed to offer participants an alternative to a generic 2-day presentation skills .

When you learn how to improve your presentation skills, you will feel more comfortable about speaking in front of an audience. It will also enhance your verbal communication skills in other ways. After all, if you can speak with confidence and authority to a room of people, a chance encounter with your MD will be a walk in the park!

The Polished Presenter is distributed on behalf of Chalmers International. Chalmers International is a long-term partner of Holst and brings over 20 years of research and experience.

Looking for Other Courses?

Verbal communication skills are much more than presentation skills training. Consider Dynamic Speaking® to develop your personal speaking style and bring out a more dynamic you.

The goal of effective communication should be for listeners to say 'Me too!' versus 'So what?'
