Start building your presentation confidence and your excellent business presentation skills today.
It's time to say goodbye to the fear and frustration of upcoming presentations and hello to audiences wanting to congratulate you on your clear, powerful and compelling messages.
Over 3300 students know that being able to clearly and convincingly communicate their ideas is critical to their business success. Talent and skill are not enough. If you are not able to clearly and confidently present your ideas and key messages to others, you are highly likely to lose out to someone who can.
BUSINESS PRESENTATION SKILLS: are a critical factor for leaders and business managers if they want to succeed.
Millions of business presentations are given across the globe every day. The need for managers and team members to give presentations has become the norm. Yet, most of us don't like standing up and speaking in front of others. It can be a stressful experience, and for many they are overwhelmed by the fear of giving presentations.
As a result of this, many business presentations are highly ineffective. They have unclear messages, fail to motivate or engage audiences, add little or no value and are frankly boring. The good news: it doesn't need to be that way.
This course will provide you with clear, easy to understand and implement ideas that will stand you out in a crowd of mediocre and boring business presenters. It will give you the confidence to plan, structure and deliver a professional business presentation that connects with your audience and moves people to take action on your ideas and key messages.
There is a support group for students of the course that provides the opportunity to practice presenting and get feedback on your progress if you choose.

Prepare and deliver winning business presentations that have a laser like focus on the key messages that are most likely to influence and persuade your audience.

This short lesson will show you how to get maximum value from this business presentation skills course, and why that matters.
This lesson introduces you to three key principles that you should follow for all your presentations, whether business or personal. You will find we keep referring to these as we move through the course, and you will unfortunately remember sitting (or possibly sleeping) through many presentations where one or more of these presentation principles have not been followed successfully.
You might be fooled into thinking that every presenter knows the purpose of their presentation. But do they really know their purpose, or is it just a vague notion? Find out how to test and hone the purpose of your presentation. The clearer your purpose, the easier everything else becomes.
How much presentation planning do we really do? For many people the answer is 'not very much' The most common tool used in planning is widely known as cut and paste. It goes like this: Have I done a similar presentation to this before? If not, do I know someone who has? For the sake of clarity, No - cut and paste is NOT really planning. Here are four easy to use tools that can help you plan your presentation. Using planning tools will ultimately save you time as it greatly increases the chances of getting your message across clearly first time.
Maintaining eye contact with your audience during your presentation is important. This lesson provides you with some useful strategies to adopt and some traps to avoid.
Your voice is the most important tool at your disposal as a presenter and public speaker. Your voice is driven by muscles, and like any other muscles they benefit from targeted preparation and maintenance. Here are some exercises to warm up and strengthen your voice.
Get the most from your course. It is great that you have invested the time and money to further develop your skills. However, the story doesn't end there. The real value you get is from putting your learning into action by changing your habits and trying out new ideas and approaches.
Here is a great opportunity to see SUCCES in action. Watch this video of the Toastmasters 2015 World Champion of Public Speaking. Before you watch it, download the SUCCES analysis document, and as you watch, make a note of examples of the differing elements being used. There are plenty to find.
