presentation clinics/polishing sessions/presentation courses
As well as in-house courses I run presentation clinics/polishing sessions for companies who want to develop the most effective presentations. Of course I do last minute emergency ones but its best to have a good lead in time for the best presentations.
quote from a presentation review/clinic day where I am helping a company re-think their presentations with their audience firmly in mind and to re-structure the presentations.
"Apologies for the silence, last week was the conference and it was all a bit hectic. The good news: both talks went down incredibly well. So much so that our talk was one of the best of the conference according to a number of people, so a big thanks has to go to you for your help. The South African team all have expressed an interest in doing the course"
Natural Public Speaking
I run a course called "natural public speaking" for organisations, which is about what gets in the way for public speakers and how we can re-think public speaking to make it simpler, more possible and of course more natural.
Natural Public Speaking
The course is suitable for;
• people who want to get better at public speaking
• people who are fed up with stage fright
• People who want to connect more with the audience with ease
We often put huge pressures on ourselves when we do public speaking.
Wouldn't it be good if being the centre of attention was simpler, straightforward and more natural?
This course helps you to re-think public speaking and to explore the fundamental skills we need to speak in front of an audience with ease. Learn these simple skills and you can change your relationship with audiences. Learn how to connect with ease and move away from performance, or gripping a shaking script!
The course is experiential, supportive and more fun that it sounds.

people coming from your organisation
Sometimes people feel more at ease having some training away from the organisation.
So people come on my public courses and I invoice your organisation.
Various organisations send me 4 or 6 people a year.

participant's quotes and organisational feedback
Everyone really enjoyed the session. What made it particularly interesting was that it was based on how to be yourself when presenting. Not what you should be.
Your style was really welcoming and inclusive and I know that all in attendance really enjoyed the day, once again many thanks.

A big thank you again for running the training for the young people. I think the concept worked really well for them and certainly helped in building up more confidence. I was impressed with the changes I saw.
I certainly think you should do this again for young people..
