Presentation Skills Workshop
Jack teaches professionals how to move and speak in a way that captures attention and communicates their messages to different audiences.
According to research 25-40%* of business presentations require additional work from the audience after the presentation, just to understand what it was they were listening to in the first place.
The cost of such poor public speaking is estimated by the Swiss anti PowerPoint League, as costing the European economy €110 billion per annum. The number of PowerPoint presentations has increased on average by 15% per annum and is double the number delivered in 2006.
The good news is that the old days of endless, pointless PowerPoint led presentations are drawing to a close.
The workshop is run in a coaching style, looking at building on strengths rather than eliminating perceived weaknesses. It will be geared to making your presentation vital and alive and to putting your ideas across in a powerful, effective, entertaining and stimulating way.
Let’s be honest, anxiety is the main problem. And this is what usually gets in the way of you and your story. So take away the fear of presenting and really connect with your audience.

|Nerves, ums and errs and shuffling, no eye contact, monotone voice||Here’s what you’re doing wrong! Now stop doing these things right now. We’ve sorted the symptoms, who cares about causes?||These problems are usually nerves and not reaching out. There’s not one solution for a group but often one simple change will make all the difference for an individual.|
