Presenting with Power, Impact and Empathy

"seminar

Public speaking is an art form made easier once you understand your audience, their hopes and expectations.

Addressing the crowd doesn’t have to be an ordeal – know your audience, know your subject and keep it simple.

What to expect

This interactive, practical course will hone and enhance your skills when speaking to larger groups at conferences or public meetings.

You will learn techniques that will help you speak with impact, assurance and empathy, when communicating with your colleagues. Whether you’re addressing a board meeting or handling the sales team, this course will give you the skills you need to communicate your messages and you achieve your objectives.

We show how to develop and deliver your key messages empathetically, by turning your presentation around and imaging it from the point of view of your audience. This will help you to soften a formal speech and let it flow in a more conversational style.

Keeping words simple and sentences short gives the intimate touch, which means that people feel you are talking personally to them. That really helps if you have challenging messages to deliver around potentially emotive issues.
