Effective communication is at the heart of every good organisation and all business professionals must play their part. From informal team briefings to the strategic delivery of messages to a large audience, you will learn to quickly and effectively hone in on existing skills whilst reading the audience and switching to more advanced methods where required.

Whilst many will dedicate hours to slide preparation, the key human element of communication confidence is often forgotten. Redcliffe’s highly interactive, one-day advanced presentation training focuses on developing that confidence for application in realistic scenarios based on job roles.

A huge facet of effective presentation is the feeling an audience is left with. Whether presenting in a small group or to hundreds at a seminar, there is a wide range of tools and techniques designed to help. Taking these into consideration during preparation allows presenters to send the right message based on the audience whilst handling questions on the go.

To develop advanced presentation techniques effectively, new skills require practice and feedback. This course has everything covered including advanced PowerPoint possibilities. It’s important to remember, not everyone likes being ‘talked at’. Building rapport and engaging the audience are key skills to develop here. This course provides a safe and professional environment to practise and thrive.

Redcliffe’s online training session consolidates basic skills with more advanced techniques, allowing experienced presenters to reach new levels of confidence, competence and skill. Participants are asked to give short, pre-prepared presentations to apply learning and develop confidence during this live and interactive course. Attendees require computer access with a camera and microphone. Full instructions are provided in advance.
