I was nervous about being taken out of my comfort zone but now enjoy the challenge of building on the new knowledge acquired.

Presentation Skills Training
You are not alone in needing Presentation Skills Training
- Does the thought of speaking to a group fill you with dread?
- Are people left underwhelmed by your presentations?
- Is putting together a presentation a nightmare?
- Do you want to deliver powerful and memorable presentations?
Help is at hand!
Why improve my presentation skills?
Whatever business you are in, the majority of people who give presentations have never had any training. What's more - it shows! You nervously rush through a presentation, sit down, ask your neighbour "how was it", and they will tell you it was fine! Why? Because they don't want to have to do the next one, and because it is the expected answer. Be honest, have you ever had real feedback? Real training? Probably not! Help is at hand!
How Business Training Direct can help improve your presentation skills
Through our presentations skills training courses you will learn that the words are only a part of the process. You will learn to:
- Overcome nerves
- Ensure that your presentations are memorable, relevant and impressive
- Use your voice to effect
- Build audience rapport
- Use gestures positively
- Use PowerPoint to effect
- Add impact and interest
- Deliver powerful messages with confidence
Importantly you will discover that increased confidence and skill will mean that you actually enjoy speaking opportunities. Skill in presenting and speaking opens doors, increases confidence and career possibilities. We run one and two day courses that will deliver the training you need to achieve these skills and more. The course outlines page will help you select the course you need.
Public training skills courses
Our public training skills courses are held regularly according to demand. They are for individuals from various backgrounds and are held in convenient locations that provide a suitable atmosphere for learning. Small groups of between 6-8 people ensure that everyone gets the time and opportunity to maximise their learning. The very reasonable course fees are inclusive of all costs including refreshments, a buffet lunch, and course handouts. In addition some follow-up support is offered at no extra cost if required. For further information about our public training skills courses contact us or see the course outlines.
In-house training skills courses
In-house training skills courses are for companies who wish to train a group of their employees at the same time. In this case the course is normally conducted on your premises and you take responsibility for refreshments. (Alternatives can be arranged where this is not possible.) Whilst covering the core components of the course, there is the opportunity to tailor the course to your company's specific needs and we are always happy to discuss your particular requirements with you.
The groups should still be 6-8 people to provide maximum learning. There is a saving on fees for group bookings. For further information and to discuss your in-house training requirements, please feel free to contact us or take a look through the course outlines as a guide to the programmes.
We can also offer one 2 one training courses for managers, executives and senior staff members. These sessions can be very helpful for both general presentation skills training in a more direct and individual style and also be used to prepare for a specific speech or presentation that is coming up (e.g. wedding speeches and interviews). Contact us for more information, or look at the One 2 One presentation skills training courses page.
One to One sessions at short notice for people with urgent meetings, and presentations.
If you are willing, you will conquer your fears - even the very hardened of us did so. My confidence grew, my stance was stronger, I projected myself further.
This course will make rapid strides to improve your presentations and move you to another level. Building on your experience, we will focus on a number of aspects that will immediately make a difference to your presentations.
