Event description

Description

According to a 2014 survey by Prezi, 70% of people say presentation skills are critical for career success.

Yet, surprisingly 20% would do almost anything to avoid giving a presentation – including calling in sick or ask another colleague to present for them.

I don't need to present on stage!

While many people in organisations instantly think, ‘I don’t need to present on stage’, the life of a leader includes many other important opportunities to present.

This can be:

  • As simple as introducing yourself to people – what first impression are you making?
  • As common as pitching an idea in a meeting; or
  • As crucial as speaking to inspire change to stakeholders.

Influencing with impact is a crucial part of being a leader. It will either boost or limit your career. It could make the difference between staying in middle management and reaching the C-suite.

The Best Way to Learn

What is the best way to learn to become an influential presenter?

There are many presentation skills programs already in the marketplace. However, most of them limit the room for growth through too much theory and not enough practice.

Think of any world-class performer – athlete, musician or dancer – it was practice that made them outstanding at what they do.

Two Things You Need

To become a better (more influential) presenter you need two things:

  • The confidence to step up and into the spotlight; and
  • The competence to deliver a clear message and inspire action.

Both of these factors grow through building real-life practice and real-world experience.

Learn how to...

In the two-day Influential Presenting program you will:

  • Learn three different presentation styles – introduce yourself with power, pitch ideas in meeting and inspire change
  • Learn the seven keys to presentation design
  • And most importantly, you will present at least 10 times in front of real-people – including on camera.

This program is for...

This program is for Leaders, People Managers, Project & Program Managers in the VPS, Local Government & Higher Education.

Participants will gain a noticeable difference in their confidence, performance and influence levels from participating in this two-day event.
