Public Presentation Genius training

It’s a serious question. Would you like to? This course is how you start. Because a presentation can change your world – but if it’s like typical presentations it won’t. Because most presentations suck. Yours doesn’t have to, even if it’s not Presentation Genius 😉

The next available course is Friday, September 15th, in Durham. It’s where you learn how to deliver effective business presentations – without the angst.

Let’s face it, most presentations are ineffective – but yours doesn’t have to be. And most presenters aren’t very good – but you can be. This is very much a presentations course which shows you what you need to know to deliver a presentation that’s more stylish and more effective than the rest.

What will I learn?

A presentation genius can stand up without fear: they can make their slides sing, or not use slides at all if they decide not to. A presentation genius knows what the presentation is for, and how to achieve that. Each workshop is a little different, depending on who’s there, but typically we’ll cover:

  • tools for handling your nerves
  • understanding the psychology of the audience
  • structuring your presentation to make it work
  • designing effective slides – and knowing when to use them (or not!)
  • sounding and looking authoritative and confident

… and some people say…

Oh, want some paperwork to print off? A two-page A4 brochure is here!

In short, it’s a full package to get you on the road towards presentation genius. We’ll not waste your time by asking you to do a presentation and then tell you what you did wrong. That’s no fun, and  it’s not how people learn best: instead we’ll show you the big ideas behind presentations that you can modify to your own needs, and give you the exercises you’ll need to do this in your own time. If you want some one to one support, just let us know and grab a Genius Ticket.

That way we can cram as much content as possible into the time.

Is the course suitable for me?

Everyone will benefit, but it’s particularly aimed at those with only a little experience as presenters. We won’t cover the ‘keystroke’ level of training – why do that, when software changes all the time and, more importantly, it’s about how you use it, not which software it is! (And for some things, of course, there should be no software!)  The principles we cover can be used and applied to any type of presentation.

What’s the risk? And what do I get?

And on top of the actual course itself, you’ll get:

  • a downloadable copy of Simon’s last book (Presenting Made Simple)
  • audio recordings of exercises
  • downloads of PDFs of extra content
  • refreshments and a (great!) lunch
  • discounted access to the Presentation Genius online training!
  • hardcopy of Presentation Genius at only £5.00 (see here for reviews etc)

We honestly believe you’ll not get better quality and value in a presentations training course.
