Whether you are presenting to 5 or 50 people, learn how to find your voice, create engagement, handle your nerves and manage audience questions.

Do You:

  • Want to have control during the presentation and stop getting sidetracked?
  • Need tips to engage and maintain audience attention?
  • Want to deal more effectively with audience questions and interruptions?

If yes, then…’Inspire the Room’ is for you!

  • Our aim is to make sure you leave with practical tools and techniques to enable you to deliver a great presentation or speech to a variety of audiences
  • You’ll leave the course feeling that you can do it, that you’re making progress and feeling BRAVE as a result of being able to practice in a safe environment

This is a 3 hour session, delivered virtually on Microsoft Teams.

What’s the session about?

This ‘Inspire the Room’ course will give you the structure and the technique to handle nerves, speak clearly and effectively, plus handle your audience and their questions.

What will we cover:

  1. Structure: How to open with impact, how to stay on track and how to finish with purpose
  2. Engage: How to keep your audience interested, even when it’s a tough subject
  3. You: How to build your presence, deal with nerves and not get sidetracked or lose your way
  4. Manage: How to handle the audience and their questions, especially the challenging ones
  5. Practice: Get some feedback and tips on how to improve your personal presentation style

What you Need to Know Before you Attend

  • It’s an interactive, virtual 3-hour session with an opportunity for you to apply the tools to your real-life presentation or speech
  • That means we will be asking you to practise and contribute. Make sure you’re able to do that in a way that’s best for you
  • Please be aware we’ll ask you to keep your camera on as much as possible. It really helps the conversations, the group and the trainers 
  • We know it can be hard to speak up and be on screen with 100s of people, we keep the overall group size smaller for that reason
  • Before you attend you must prepare a 2-3 minute opening of a presentation. It can be one you have delivered before OR a new one that you have to deliver in the future.
  • When you sign up, we’ll send you a template to help you prepare this 2-3 minute opening – it uses a great ABCD Technique
  • No need to get it perfect. The session will help you practice and refine it
