Lots of businesses are now turning to zoom or other online platforms to do their presentations. Zoom is akin to TV – speaking into a camera, and like any form of communication isn’t easy.
We love all the training work we do with businesses to make them better communicators in this space.
This week we have done a 1 day presentation skills training session for 8 clients. They all have to deliver online learning programmes in the education sector and we worked with them to challenge the way they use the platform – ensuring their presentations are unique, on brand and have the maximum impact.
And we are also running 2 sessions for business people who are presenting their industry awards next week – 1 is delivering a speech and the other is the host of the event. We’ll be working with them on their script, their delivery and also making sure they exceed expectations.
So if you want to be the best communicator in your zooms, online webinars, or presentations get in touch and we’ll design a training session that is totally bespoke to you.
We’ve worked with some of the worlds biggest brands– Virgin, AOL, Prudential Plc, Red Bull, Nike, Porsche, ASOS...
Our tailor-made presentation coaching is based on over 20 years experience. And we are experts in bringing out your personality, making sure it is both personal to you and works with the brand you represent.
We’ve worked with TV’s biggest presenters - Dermot O’Leary, Claudia Winkleman, David Beckham, Zoe Ball, Raymond Blanc, Rylan Clark-Neal, Christine Bleakley…so we know what makes a good speaker.
Many of the presenters we work with present TV’s biggest programmes and events, and some are BAFTA award winning - so if you want the best in presentation coaching we’d love to work with you.
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:
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.
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 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 ‘show’.
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.
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.
Based on our research we will design your bespoke training package.
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:
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.
We’ll ensure your presentation works with the brand of your business and suits your customer/audience.
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:
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.
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.
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.

Strategic Development Network
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.
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?
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!
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...
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.
A one day presenter training and presentation skills coaching session for 4 members of staff - to include on camera presenting work and presentation skills.
Each attendee is sent a form, where they can tell us about their business, their role, the type of presenting they do, and what they want to get out of the day.
We tailor-make the programme to suit each individual’s needs, and those of the company or department that asked us to do the training.
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.
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.
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.
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 producing from us.
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.
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.
We end the day discussing their personal brands, bringing together all the work we have done.
"Thanks so much to you! The sessions were amazing", Lise Colyer, Communications Sage Foundation.
