This advanced presentation skills course provides a challenging and practical approach which shows already competent and experienced delegates how to present in a highly engaging and memorable way. A detailed look at audience demographics, the structure and timing of your presentation, and learning how to handle hostile questions are all key to taking you from good to great as a presenter.
This course also features an in depth study on the anatomy and physiology of the human voice. A vocal coach will take you through the theory of phonation (how we make sounds), and apply that to the way you physically use your voice during a presentation. This includes a suite of vocal warm ups to prepare your vocal folds for presenting, breathing exercises to help fine tune your pace when speaking and maximise volume safely, and microphone technique for larger auditoriums.

Latest Advanced Presentation Skills Resources and Management
Here’s the two most important lessons about influencing.
The skill of influencing has to be up there as one of the most valuable things to get right. We start working out what works when we are about 2 years old, pushing and bending our parents will through any means possible. Back then, we didn’t even care what others thought of us; we would happily throw a wobbly in the shopping line without the slightest concern for our reputation, all in the name of braking our parents resolve and securing whatever it was that we wanted.
The most important management role; building competence through coaching
One of our 4 C’s of being a high functioning team is ‘Competence’. It’s the domain expertise, skill element of the team. It’s something we all need, the manager, but also every single member of the team. However for the manager there is something really important to understand; no matter how brilliant you are, how great your competence, if your team isn’t up to the required competence then two things become very evident: You can’t go and have lunch because your people will be addicted to you, and you will never be able to empower your people with confidence.
