CONFERENCE PRESENTER TRAINING

Many of our clients have to speak at conferences.  Stepping away from your desk, and delivering an effective presentation can be a difficult thing to do.  And for most of our clients they fall into the trap of writing a speech that is void of their own personality, that has too much corporate jargon and won't create the desired impact.

So when you are presenting at a conference think of these following steps:  

WRITE A SCRIPT:  Write your script as you would speak to a friend - make it conversational and personal to you.  

EMBRACE STRUCTURE:  When you are writing your script make sure you embrace structure - make sure you write a really strong intro.  You want to capture your audience from the off - so how you start, and how you set up your speech can be really important. 

PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT:  Practice your script out aloud as much as you can.  You want to know that script as best you can, so on the day you feel comfortable and can concentrate on enjoying the opportunity to speak to people, rather than just getting through it.  

KNOW YOUR ENVIRONMENT:  Make sure you know the space you are going to present in - if you there is a lecturn, what sort of mic is it etc.  

NERVES:  We all get nervous.  And being honest about how you are feeling can make you more personable and relatable, so don't be afraid to share how you are feeling.  But a good trick just before you go on is to take just one deep breath in and out, and make sure it goes fully out.  That final breath will make you match ready!  

ENJOY IT:  And enjoy it.  Think of this as an amazing opportunity to share your message with others.  Be passionate.  Smile.  And connect with what you are saying!

Media Training Main Content

HOW WE WORKWHO WE WORK WITHTestimonialsCase Study

If you want media training that is current, dynamic and gets the best out of you we are the place to come.  

We are the UK's leading media training company and deliver bespoke 1-to-1 training.  We offer something extra special and personal in the all too sterile and out-of-date world of media training.  

We are the only company to develop your 'personal brand' helping you find your own presenting style - one that works with the brand of your business.   

We will design a media training programme based on your goals, the work you will have to do and our intensive research on your business.

You'll work with the TV Producers, media coaches and former BBC NEWS journalists that have worked with some of the biggest names in broadcasting.  

We’ll teach you our secrets, and expert tips and tricks that we have developed in over 20 years in the media business.

So if you want to maximise your TV, radio and media opportunity we can help you realise your true potential.   

A FANTASTIC SUCCESS RATE AND EXCEPTIONAL CLIENT TESTIMONIALS:

Our sessions are both practical and information based with constant individual feedback and coaching.  

Our clients love what we do and have gone on to appear on BBC NEWS, SKY NEWS, Channel 4 News, ABC America, ITN, Channel 4 News, ITV, BBC’s Question Time, Channel 4, Channel 5, SKY1, More 4, BBC Radio, Women's Hour, Al Jazeera TV, CNBC, Red Bull TV and magazine shows like The One Show and This Morning.  

WORK WITH A TOP TV PRODUCER & FORMER BBC JOURNALIST:

We have Produced TV’s biggest programmes from BBC NEWS to entertainment shows like Strictly Come Dancing to Documentaries to Features.  

A Producer is hired to ‘Produce’ the Presenter – writing their scripts and giving them direction.  So we are seasoned experts at making 'you' look good - from perfecting your copy to how you deliver it.  

DEVELOP YOUR 'PERSONAL BRAND':

Our media training programmes are personality driven, and your personality is the key to your success.  Audience’s are wise to and turned off by people who have been ‘media trained’.  

If you want to be successful you need to come across as natural, authentic and honest so that your audience can connect and identify with you - it's what we call finding your personal brand.  And we'll ensure your personal brand works with the brand of your business. 

HOW TO PRESENT AND WRITE GOOD CONTENT: 

We'll also look at your content as without great content everything else falls down.  

We are experts in script writing and content creation and will reveal our tricks on how to write and structure your content to ensure your message authentic, engaging and impactful.  

HOW TO MASTER THE RULES OF THE MEDIA:

Our media training courses are bespoke to each client but the areas we look to include are: 

- How to think about your media interview.  

- How and what to prepare.

- How to master an interview and answer difficult questions.

- How to get your message across.

- How to talk to time. 

- How to present with impact.  

- How to be your authentic self.  

Being the face of your business is now commonplace for many businesses, and we want you to realise the media is actually a really exciting place to be.  

We work with clients of all levels of experience - for both TV, radio and online content.  

We’ve worked with everyone from international sports stars like Colin Jackson and Mark Webber.  To entertainments biggest presenters like Claudia Winkleman and Christine Bleakley.  To Executive Directors of major corporations like The Prudential, to lawyers, to journalists for The Mirror, The Guardian, The Huffington Post and New York Times, to medical professionals.

CLIENT: SAGE

BRIEF:

A one day bespoke training session for 4 people, to include media training and presentation skills coaching.

BEFORE THE DAY:

Each attendee is sent a form, where they can tell us about their business, their role, their needs and want to get out of their time with us.  

A BESPOKE TRAINING PROGRAMME:

We tailor-make the programme to suit each individual’s needs, and those of the department that asked us to do the training.

A DAY OF TWO HALVES - AM: MEDIA TRAINING. PM: PRESENTATION SKILLS:

The morning focussed on media training, and the afternoon on presentation skills.

We started by taking a step back, looking at the brand of the business, their customer, the ambition of the business and the purpose of their video content. This ‘re-group’ really helps the clients to revaluate, refocus and puts everything we do into context.

DEVELOPING YOUR PERSONAL BRAND:

We discuss the importance of finding your own voice, but one that works within the voice of the business – and that is the core purpose of the whole day – to explore, develop and establish each individual’s presenting style.

OUR DO’S AND DON’TS:

There are no general rules to how to be a good presenter – as each person is different. So we chat you through our checklist of things to think about when it comes to being ‘you’ and ‘believable’ on camera.

ON CAMERA WORK:

We worked with the clients in lots of different ways, with and without scripts - putting the clients in scenarios that reflect the media work they will have to do.  Each exercise is also about building their personal brand, with detailed coaching from us.

SCRIPTS AND DEALING WITH INFORMATION/TAKE-OUT:

Scripts play a big part in what we do – the foundation to a good presenter is understanding what makes a good script, how to make it your own, and how to deal with any information you might need to get across.

PRESENTATION SKILLS:

The afternoon was spent looking at presentation skills. We started off with our do’s and dont’s, before giving feedback on the scripts they had previously written.

Much time was then spent rewriting scripts, before we worked with each person individually on delivering their new presentation in front of the room.

THEIR PERSONAL BRANDS:

We end the day discussing their personal brands, bringing together all the work we have done.

Presentation Skills Training Main Content

Why We're SpecialHow we workWho We Work WithTestimonialsCase Studies

We offer something special and rather exciting in the crowded world of presentation skills training and presentation skills coaching.  

We offer a detailed 360° approach - from script writing to your visuals so your presentation is impactful and authentic.

We work with clients on a range of presentations - business events and award ceremonies, online webinars and internal meetings.  

Here are five things that make us special:  

1: OVER 20 YEARS EXPERIENCE: Our presentation skills training is based on over 20 years experience.  We have an exceptional track record working with clients of all levels of experience.

2: EXPERTS IN WRITING CONTENT AND ‘PRODUCING’ SPEAKERS: Our background is in TV - working as Producers and Journalists for the BBC, ITV, Channel 4, SKY, CNBC.  As the Producer we ‘Produce’ the Presenter - writing their scripts in their voice and giving direction and we apply these unique skills to the corporate sector.  

We work with you to develop your own style and 'personal brand' - one that works with the brand of your business.  And we focus on two essential ingredients:

  • Your Script and Content – without a good script everything else falls down.
  • Your Presentation Skills – focussing on you, giving you the confidence and tools to develop your personal presenting style.

3: BESPOKE PRESENTATION SKILLS TRAINING THAT GETS RESULTS: Everything we do is bespoke - we don’t have a 'one size fits all' approach to presentation skills.  We can work with you in a 2 hour coaching session, to group sessions across full days.

We'll do extensive research into your business, your audience or customer and the context of your presentation.    

We can also add design a package that includes other elements like on-camera presenting or media training too.  

We've coached clients on everything from a one day session on revamping their monthly meetings, to invidual coaching sessions for presentations, to consulting on a virtual event looking at everythig from the set, to the cameras to the script.   

4: AN EXCEPTIONAL CLIENT LIST:  We have an exceptional client list, and work with businesses big or small and with CEOs, business owners, politicians, sports stars and journalists.

You’ll recognise our clients – Porsche, ASOS, Red Bull, Prudential, The Guardian, NIKE, Sage, Lush Cosmetics, SEGA, AOL and celebrities like Zoe Ball, Claudia Winkleman, Graham Norton.

5: A 360° CREATIVE APPROACH: We see your presentation as a creative opportunity and are experts in content creation and staging so will explore every aspect of your presentation to ensure you put on a great ‘production’.

Everything is bespoke to you and your type of presentation, ensuring we get exceptional results.  We can work with you in 2 hour coaching sessions online or in person, or across full days.  

PRIOR TO YOUR TRAINING SESSION - WE RESEARCH YOU, YOUR BUSINESS AND YOUR NEEDS:

In advance of our presentation skills coaching session we’ll send you a form to fill in where we can start to get to know you, your business and your needs.  We'll then undertake detailed research into your business, brand, and customer – from looking at your website to social media to any previous presentations.

WE DESIGN A BESPOKE PRESENTATION SKILLS TRAINING SESSION:

Based on our research we will design your bespoke training package.

THE TRAINING SESSION – STARTING WITH AN INITAL EXPLORATION OF YOU, YOUR BUSINESS AND YOUR AUDIENCE:

Our sessions are both practical, with detailed individual coaching and feedback, and informaton led.  

We always start with an evalutation of you, your business and your customer - putting all of our work into context.  We’ll discuss some crucial areas:

  • How you want to come across.
  • What is the brand of your business.
  • Who is your audience/customer.
  • Your key purpose. 
  • What you personally want to achieve from this presentation.

WE’LL DEVELOP YOUR PERSONAL BRAND:

Presentation training can do more harm than good if it’s not personal to you.  Our coaching sessions help you develop your own voice and style, ensuring you come across as authentic and ‘on brand’.  We will enourage you to find your own language and your own type of presentation.  

ENSURING YOUR PERSONAL BRAND WORKS WITH YOUR BUSINESS:

We’ll ensure your presentation works with the brand of your business and suits your customer/audience.

WE’LL EXAMINE YOUR CONTENT:

We are experts in script writing and will ensure that your scripts are personal to you and have the desired impact. We’ll explore these key areas:

  • A clear purpose.
  • Dynamic structure.
  • Language that is personal to you.
  • Clear take-out.
  • Maximum impact.

OUR CHECK LIST OF ESSENTIAL DO’S AND DON’TS:

Our check list of do’s and don’ts will take your presentations to the next level and look at both how to be a good presenter, but also how to create a good presentation. 

ENSURING YOUR VISUALS AND SLIDES HAVE IMPACT:

Slides can be the death of a presentation, and presentations can rely too heavily on them.  We will help you use your slides more effectively and for maximum impact. 

THINK OF THIS AS A CREATIVE OPPORTUNITY:

We love to be creative so will come up with dynamic ideas to ensure we create a fantastic presentation. That means exploring and developing every aspect of your presentation – from your delivery, to your music, to your visuals.

ON-THE-DAY COACHING:

If you need us to come to the event on the day we can - working with you in the space can put the icing on the cake.

We work with a whole range of businesses - big and small.  Many of our clients are repeat customers, and we work hard to build up good relationships with everyone we work with.

Our presentation skills training is bespoke to you, your brand, your company and the event – whether that’s an internal presentation, conference, or online webinar.  

Our clients include ASOS, Prudential Plc, Red Bull, Sage, Porsche Racing, NIKE, National Pharmacy Association, Virgin Media Business, AOL, Simpson Millar Solicitors, The Huffington Post, The Guardian, Lush, Conde Naste, Rosemary Water, ATD Direct, WCRS.  

And we've worked with many high profile celebrities including Zoe Ball, Dermot O'Leary, Claudia Winkleman and sports stars including Mark Webber, Bonita Norris, and Colin Jackson CBE.

CASE STUDY 1

CLIENT: PRUDENTIAL PLC

Prudential Plc are a regular client. Our first session was to coach two Executive Directors who were giving a presentation at the company's annual review.  

One Executive Director was the host of the event – linking in and out of VT's, and introducing each speaker.  The other was giving a 30 minute presentation.  

FINDING THEIR BRAND:

We worked with the client on their personal brand – how do they want to come across, and what do they personally want to get out of the event?  And we explored the brand of the business, the purpose and tone of the event – how do Prudential want to come across, what is their overarching message and how can we best capture this?

WORKING ON THEIR SCRIPT AND BEING CREATIVE:

We gave feedback on their scripts, which lacked personality, shape, structure, tone and weren't written for their voice.  We explored ideas on how they could be more impactful, from how to use the audience, music, to is ’30 minutes’ really necessary?  We came up with a ‘watercooler moment’ for the end of one client's speech - he wanted to get people talking, it was a tough one to pull off, but he did it!

WORKING ON THEIR PRESENTATION SKILLS:  

We worked on their presentation skills, focusing on shape, tone, message, personality, pace – all things that when combined help to pull off a winning presentation.  There was a long list of practical things we worked through – how to remember the script, visuals, microphone technique, and how to control nerves, entrance music, use of the stage...

FANTASTIC FEEDBACK:  

Both speakers had fantastic feedback, and we continue to work with Prudential Plc.

"A big thank you!  Your coaching made such a difference."  Cathy Lewis, Non Executive Director Prudential International Assurance.  

"The event was a huge success and your support really paid off."  Brad Jennings, Director of Transformation Engagement, Prudential Assurance.
