Training Overview

Engage audiences, sell in proposals and win more new business pitches by becoming a captivating and effective presenter.

Being able to deliver presentations effectively is an absolute must for senior PR executives but while many produce good content their delivery skills let them down and their strong messages are immediately lost or diluted. This highly interactive course focusses primarily on delivery, giving you the techniques, feedback, practice and confidence to command attention, deliver the right messages and be more successful in your outcomes.

How will I benefit?

No hours of boring theory on this course, or any Big Fish course for that matter. You learn from doing. Working on a presentation you bring with you, you get the opportunity to try new techniques in a safe environment, and receive useful feedback.

With a background that covers over 20 years in the PR industry married with extensive experience in the performing arts, your trainer can give you practical insights into presenting that you can't get anywhere else. You'll see for yourself how altering your body language and vocal projection can totally transform your delivery. You'll learn techniques that ensure that the audience is looking where you want them to look. And you'll discover how to deal with nerves and anxiety, and how to feel more confident, even when presenting someone else's material.

What will I learn?

  • Tips and techniques for making presentations more powerful
  • The importance of focussing on objectives and messages
  • How to use vocal exercises to make your voice more effective
  • How body language can strengthen (or weaken) the message
  • How to use visual aids to their best effect
  • The importance of pause and how to master it
  • How to connect with the audience
  • The difference between scanning and making eye contact
  • How to stop umming, erring and other distracting bad habits
  • How to become your own critic
  • Pull your audience in, not push your message out

Who should attend?

This course is for PR professionals who are already making regular presentations and who want to master the art of public speaking and presenting.

What else do I need to know?

You'll need to bring with you a 5-10 minute presentation to deliver to the group. You'll work on the presentation during the course and have the chance to fine-tune and enhance it. Be prepared to present in front of other delegates, and critique both your and other delegates' presentations. Please note; this course is for experienced presenters who want to hone their skills. Less experienced presenters might want to consider Presentation Skills for PR Professionals.

What delegates say about Advanced Presentation Training for PR Professionals:

I found the session very useful. Lorraine introduced me to many useful tips I can implement going forward. I will definitely feel more confident in presentation skills, stop rambling, and pace.

Really useful! The individual feedback was fantastic and Lorraine was very honest and helpful. Lorraine is great!

There was a very good mix of topics covered: the interplay between visual, verbal, vocal communication, how to appear confident, how to use slides as an aid, little tips and tricks for tackling specific problems. It was great seeing how everyone improved over the course of the day and how the techniques are dismissed were put into action. A day well spent!

Super useful! Made me think more about structure of presentations and how to introduce each slide/piece of content, and having confidence in myself.

Enjoyable and engaging. Friendly tone and very collaborative. Great and constant feedback throughout.
