This short course is intended to explore key presentation skills

What will the course cover?

We will explore what makes a good presentation and a good presenter and identify some key learning which will help the novice presenter build self-confidence in presenting and answering questions.

Now that so much has moved online, we will consider the key differences between face to face and online presentations and how we need to adapt our styles for different forms of delivery. This will be a highly interactive session, with lots of attendee participation and the opportunity for delegates to practise their skills in front of a friendly audience. 

Whilst it is tempting to multi-task online, to get the most out of the course, you will need to be in a quiet, relaxed environment so you can participate fully and will need to attend for the whole session. Attendees are kindly asked to join the Zoom meeting at 13:50 and be ready to start at 14:00.

Who is the course for?

This course is for anyone who has never presented before, or who has very limited experience of presentations and who wants some help in getting started or building on existing skills.
