Our trainers are voice and body language experts who work with managers and leaders across the globe to improve their presenting style and boost their confidence.
They will explore, for example, how someone’s physical presence might be undermining their presentations and stopping them meeting their objectives when talking to their team, board, customers, suppliers or the media.
Are you aware, for example, how your nerves and posture can impact on your voice and have a negative effect on audience trust and how people react to what is being presented?
A presenter should be able to express themselves with authenticity, be perceived as an expert in their topic and keep their audience engaged.
This coaching is available one to one or for small groups and can be delivered face-to-face or online.
Who is it aimed at?
- Experienced presenters who want to improve their skills and learn new techniques relating to voice, body language and audience engagement
- Managers and team leaders who have attended presentation skills courses before but want to take their skills to the next level
- Anyone keen to have a one to one session and enjoy in-depth feedback on their presenting style and technique from an expert
- Small groups of managers or senior executives looking for top-level presentation skills training
How does it work?
Our expert trainers will run a one-to-one session or a workshop with a small group (between two and four delegates) to explore ways to improve the presentation technique and style of experienced and ambitious public speakers. The trainer will obtain a full brief before each session to ensure the training is personalised and bespoke.

The success of online learning - what our clients say
"This was one of the best trainings I have been on since joining the council and it is a big regret I could not join the real life session pre Covid. I really have been winging it all along and picking up bad habits and learning through mistakes. Virtual platform came so unexpected. Glad you guys were able to offer this training. I have been put forward to be part of an employment campaign with mini videos for our website. I hope I can call on you when I am preparing for that. It would really help to get some tips on looking calm and professional!!"
