Get the most out of your Presentations

Come to our Presentation Skills course!

The workshop is designed to  help you, not only, with the physical presentation of your presentation, but the visual presentation of your presentation
Phew…how many times can you write presentation in a sentence?

We’ve called it Presentation Skills but there is another, more nerve wracking name that this talking-in-front-of-people-business goes by…Yes, I am talking about that horrible thing known as Public Speaking(that name even gives me the jitters).


So, whether you are presenting to your colleagues, or students, a small group, a large lecture theatre, a council with executives or to yourself in the mirror – this workshop is for you!


Warning – We are only running two workshops this year, so don’t miss out & Register now for Wednesday 16 March.
Also see Martin’s post for some Top Tips on dealing with nerves when speaking in public.

Does the thought of Negotiating make you nervous?

“Let us never negotiate out of fear.
But let us never fear to negotiate.”
