Public speaking is something many of us need to tackle, especially in day to day business life. Despite our best efforts, short presentations at an in-company meeting or even making a speech at your best friend's wedding will never fail to crop up.

Our Presentation Skills course will give you the confidence and finesse you need to deliver clear, effective presentations. Do you have a big presentation? Nervous about a speech you need to make? Struggling to get your point across at meetings? Help is at Hand!

Our Presentation Skills Course is 2 days of tips, test runs and - we promise - no pressure. Over the course of the programme, you will make short, easy presentations in a relaxed classroom environment. By day 2 participants are much more relaxed and open to standing up and speaking in front of the room. At the end of the course each trainee receives a DVD of their own presentations along with constructive feedback.
