“We learned in an effective, structured manner, and the training was pitched at just the right level. I was impressed at the huge improvements we all made over the two days, particularly as most of the course was filled with “light-bulb” moments.
No matter the level of experience of writing and presenting papers, etc., I believe this course is essential and will heartily recommend it to colleagues who might be considering whether to attend. This will help to drive real change in the culture of the company.”
Rob F, Sept 2012
Every time you speak in public, your body language, tone of voice, pace, breathing patterns, and even the way you glance at your script will create an indelible impression on your audience before they have even started listening to what you are going to say.
And if you can get them to listen, then your script needs to be original, interesting and relevant if you’re going to hold their attention.
Some of the greatest scripts are ruined by poor presentation technique (and dull slides!). Some of the best presenters and sales people let themselves down with weak content.
Whether you are selling, informing, updating, entertaining, interviewing or toasting, you’ll only get it right if your content and delivery work in unison.
Our courses are designed to ensure you can write and present with impact and confidence.
They are proving ever-more popular.
We continue to coach clients on a one-to-one basis, but we now have three group courses focused on improving every aspect of you and your team’s communication skills.
As ever, we are happy to tailor these around your specific goals, but the typical alternatives are set-out below. Lawrence would, of course, be delighted to discuss the detail and potential outputs with you, and send relevant testimonials.
“Really useful, personally relevant set of insights and techniques!”
Gavin Ingham Brooke, Chief Executive, Spada Ltd
“The course was excellent and delivered on all of the elements that I wanted to be covered. I’ve gone away feeling much happier about requests to future presentations in terms of feeling confident; but also that the content will hit the right note with our clients”
Gerard Ball, Director, Skills Alliance
“Overall an excellent course and I’ll recommend it to colleagues and friends. Feels like I’ve tripled my presentation abilities in a day.”
Gavin Shields, COO, Turbulenz
“10 times better than the last (or any other) presentation giving course I’ve attended – thank you very much.”
Henry Grant, Chartered Surveyor, Earl Kendrick
“Great day – really helpful. I finally managed the ‘power of the pause’!”
Clair McCarthy, CEO, McCarthy Management
“I can’t stress enough how much I enjoyed and benefitted from today. Thanks so much guys.”
Samantha Segal, Owner of ‘My Body Works UK’
We guarantee that by the end of a course, you will have improved specific areas of your communication skills. What we really hope and plan for is that the course will trigger a ‘light bulb’ moment that completely transforms the way you think and talk about your subject matter.
We can put you in touch with people who have had exactly that experience and who will now be able to articulate clearly (we hope!) the changes our course made.
If you are shopping around, you’ll find many training courses with similar billing. Where ours have received particularly positive feedback is not just in the quality of our trainers, but in the perspective offered by teaming up a top ‘presentation’ trainer with an experienced speech writer. This means we are in a unique position to offer you advice on every stage in the public speaking process, from developing a structure and putting a script and presentation together, to delivering it with impact.
Every session is built entirely around you, your content and your fears, and so you will never be offered a ‘one size fits all’ solution. We will balance the course around the needs of the people in the room. In some cases we even train teams how to deliver presentations we have written for them in advance.
Please contact Lawrence to discuss the best way to develop a training programme for you and your team.
