Virtual Workshop

'Delivering the Sizzle, not just the Sausage' - Effective Presentation Delivery Skills

via Zoom
Thursday 04 March 2021, 9:30 PM - 5:00 PM


This workshop is now fully booked 

  • However, if you are interested in attending, please register for the event, selecting the 'I would like a quote' payment option, and you will be put on the waiting list. We'll be in contact if a place should become available. Wait-listed bookings will not be bound by our booking conditions until we have confirmed that a place is available and you have accepted it. We may also consider running a second course later in the year if there is sufficient interest.
  • Alternatively, you may like to consider booking a place on the 'Magic of Conference Presenting' workshop on 28th January, which will cover similar areas, though geared specifically towards presenting to larger audiences.

Communicating and connecting effectively with clients, whether internal or external, is an increasingly essential skill for today’s researcher/analyst.  After all, ours is a ‘people’ business: clients buy people whom they trust and respect, and who deliver personal benefit and organisational value.  

The delivery of a presentation, whether face-to-face or virtually, is a wonderful opportunity to connect with your clients and stakeholders, make a difference and strengthen the relationship.  However the effectiveness of the delivery will be largely judged not by what is communicated but by how it is communicated.  Although the content of your message is key, whether your audience understands, remembers or acts upon it, will be determined by how well you bring it alive, and energise, interpret and engage.  

This highly practical workshop will give you the opportunity to develop and refine your presentation delivery skills in a totally safe environment.  The aim is to increase both your capability and your confidence in delivering insightful, trust-enhancing and memorable messages.  

  • We will discuss such key issues as the importance of energy, body language and voice, how to handle nerves and questions, and the added complexity of delivering remotely.   
  • You will have the unique opportunity to deliver a presentation before receiving one-to-one feedback (supported by a recording of your presentation), helping you identify your current strengths and areas for improvement.  You will then get the chance to put your learning into practice by delivering again, followed by further feedback.  Due to this personally tailored approach, attendance numbers need to be strictly limited.

Each delegate will get some 'downtime' whilst others are presenting, helping you to stay refreshed and engergised.
