This program is designed for those with some speaking and presentations experience to draw on. The focus is on refreshing the public speaking and presentations essentials before enhancing existing skills so that every presentation achieves the objectives set, whether they are to inform, persuade or "make the sale".

Public speaking with impact

The public speaking and presentation skills training course is suitable for anyone required to speak or make presentations, either within organisations or to public. The program is designed for people who want to make effective speeches and presentations that achieve results. Fear of public speaking and coping with nerves is covered in both theory and practice.
