3: WE WILL DESIGN A BESPOKE PRESENTATION SKILLS TRAINING PROGRAMME FOR YOU: Everything we do is bespoke.  We don’t have a 'one size fits all' approach to presentation skills.  We'll do extensive research into your business, your audience or customer and the context of your presentation.  

We focus on two essential ingredients:

  • 1 - Your Script and Content – we'll help you find your voice, refine your message, and give detailed notes on your script, slides and content.

- 1 to 1 two hour coaching sessions online or in person.

- 1 to 1 full day or half day coaching online or in person.  

- Group coaching sessions online or in person.  

PRIOR TO YOUR PRESENTATION SKILLS TRAINING SESSION - WE WILL 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 WILL DESIGN A BESPOKE PRESENTATION SKILLS TRAINING SESSION:

Based on your needs, our research, length of the session, and number of attendees 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 and informaton led with detailed individual coaching and feedback,

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 structure, write and craft a good presentation. 

ENSURING YOUR VISUALS AND SLIDES HAVE IMPACT:

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

A 360° APPROACH - THINK OF THIS AS A CREATIVE OPPORTUNITY:

Each presenttation you do should start as a blank piece of paper.  It's a creaetive opportunity to come up with dynamic ideas.  We will develop every aspect of your presentation – from your delivery, to your music, to your visuals, to what you wear.  

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 around the world - big and small.  

Our clients are repeat customers, and we pride ourselves on good relationships.

CASE STUDY 1

CLIENT: PRUDENTIAL PLC

BRIEF:  

These were two hour 1-to 1 in person coaching sessions at Prudential's offices in London for two of their Executive Directors.  They were both giving a presentation at the company's annual review..

In advance of the sesssion we were sent their forms, scripts and sent a proposal for approval, and then we designed a bespoke presentation skills training programme. 

One Executive Director was going to be the host of the event.  The other was giving a 30 minute presentation.  Prudential Plc are a regular client.

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!

And for the one client who was the host we very much worked with her to embrace and maximise the opportunity - making it personal, varied, punchy, and fitting for the event.  

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 – confidence, how to remember the script, visuals, microphone technique, and how to control nerves, entrance music, use of the stage...

THE CLIENTS RECEIVED FANTASTIC FEEDBACK:  

And 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.   

 

CASE STUDY 2

CLIENT: SAGE

BRIEF:

A one day presenter training and presentation skills coaching session for 4 members of staff - to include both on camera presenting work and presentation skills.

DETAILED PREPARATION AND RESEARCH: 

Each attendee is sent a form, where they can tell us about themselves, their business, their role, the type of presenting they do, and what they want to get out of the day.

A BESPOKE TRAINING PROGRAMME:

We then designed a day's presenter training including writing scripts to workshop, and booking camera crews and lighting.  

AM: ON CAMERA WORK. PM: PRESENTATION SKILLS:

The morning focussed on on-camera presenting, 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' – instead it's all about embracing your points of difference.  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. Each exercise is about building their brand, with detailed feedback and individual coaching. 

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 on everything from structuring and writing scripts and content, 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.

And we received fantastic feedback:  

"Thanks so much to you!  The sessions were amazing", Lise Colyer, Communications Sage Foundation.
