Explore what elements and conditions are required to deliver high impact presentations as a leader.

The course fuses leadership skill development with presentation skills, in recognition of the highly interdependent nature of these competencies.

Good presentations make employees enthusiastic about their organisation. Powerful presenters motivate and inspire teams. If a leader cannot communicate compellingly, then there is a risk of that organisation failing.

Presenting well is a leadership skill that all senior executives must become comfortable with and excel at.

Discover evidence-based scientific approaches and insights from evolutionary psychology to understand why so many people fail to captivate their audience through poor delivery and body language.

During the training, participants are coached in presentation methods, with the trainer acting as a “critical friend”, exposing areas that need improvement or modifying. 

The course is dynamic and practical. It challenges participants to re-think their approaches to persuasion and influencing others, especially when conveying technical or complex material.

Communication is a skill that you can learn. It is something that we can all accomplish. Committing to the development of your leadership and presenting skills is one of the most valuable investments you can make.
