You’ve probably seen the statistics that show more people are afraid of speaking in public than are afraid of dying.
To develop skills to give brilliant presentations, consider joining Presentation Skills Training Course (2-days) delivered by pdtraining in Wellington and other cities in New Zealand.
Why is this fear so pervasive across humanity?
Few of us have grown up speaking or presenting in front of others, and since most of us are highly self-critical, we don’t have that confidence required to deliver a professional presentation.
So how can a training course on professional presenting help you overcome those fears?
A good presentation trainer will not only give you techniques to overcome your nerves, but also empower you with some time to practice in front of a smaller audience. Our two-day presentation course is aimed at those staff who are required to present as part of their job, so there is no other option.
You either learn to present properly or you find another job, and that is a pretty good motivator for most of us.
There are so many tips that can help, but one of the most important is to be prepared!
If you know your content inside and out, then you’re half way there. If you’re stumbling to remember concepts or how to transition from one subject to another, you’ll naturally be more nervous and less impressive with your presentation.
Knowing your content before presenting is the first major lesson to take onboard. Some of the other key points covered in this course are:
- Learn to design effective & engaging presentations
- Select the most suitable delivery method based on the audience, the environment & the message being delivered
- Master powerful & effective verbal & non-verbal communication techniques
- Gain insight into effective techniques for calming nerves
- Learn to create fantastic flip charts to support the key messages
