Presentation Skills Training
Helping great minds deliver great presentations. Every time.
I deliver Presentation Training and Presentation Coaching. I specialise in coaching individuals and training groups of people in great public speaking. I help all types of presenters, from new recruits to expert speakers.
Unlike many training companies, I focus on your needs and that of the audience. Each training course is tailored to ensure your message is delivered clearly and effectively every time.
I can help you become more confident, and effective by helping in the following areas:
Presentation training options available
I use many different tools to reduce stress and increase creativity. Whether you're taking your first step as a presenter, or just need to brush up on your presentation skills , I can help. If you're looking for training with a difference, drop me a line and tell me what you'd like to achieve.
In-house presentation training and presentation coaching
All of my training is done in-house specific to your needs. I cover a wide range of topics, from presentation stress to leadership growth. I can also help with discrete projects like European or world wide sales meetings.
Presentation skills training as part of an in-house management training programme
My communication skills training can be linked into new, or existing development programmes. This might involve training at the start of employment or as part of induction. I can also provide on-going refresher training for existing employees who need to brush-up their presentation skills.
Remote presentation coaching at your home or workplace
As with all training, the need for external support and guidance is vital. So I can offer you remote help after your course. This ensures that you can always contact me 365 days a year.
Presentation consultancy and review for company presentations and pitches
In addition to presentation skills training , I can help you to prepare and rehearse sales and marketing presentations . As an outsider, I am well placed to play the part of the customer. This ensures that defects such as language and poor slide design are caught at an early stage.
Training techniques used on the courses
All my methods have been tried and tested in a business environment. They have also been thoroughly researched as part of ongoing masters programmes. The focus of my communication courses is what makes a great speaker . Students learn what makes a great pitch, and of course, the basic mistakes many presenters make. Sessions can be video taped using our own high definition cameras. This allows delegates to sit back and reflect on their body language and style. I often use case studies, like Dragons Den, to show real life examples of good and bad presentations.
Storytelling to aid memory and retain key facts
We teach storytelling on our advanced courses using repetition, metaphors and contrasts to help get your message across clearly and visually.
Advanced course options available
Presentation review and audit
You may already have a Power point or Keynote slides how that may need refreshing. If you'd like a professionals opinion on slide structure and content, I can review your slides and provide comments by email or telephone.
Preparing for sales pitches or conference presentations
If you have an important pitch coming up and need a project manager to pull together your resources.I can help with setting objectives, audio visuals including slides, planning rehearsals, disaster mitigation and timings, so please get in touch.
Advanced Executive communication courses
I also offer advanced courses in communication skills, public speaking and body language. I also provide PowerPoint planning design and media courses.

"Working with John opened our eyes to the many pitfalls of poor presentations. In accessible language, they showed us what to do, and what not to do, and gave us a series of practical guidelines and tools to ensure we inform, educate and inspire our audiences".
