Assertiveness is a learned skill. It does not come naturally to most people.
Being able to communicate assertively is a huge benefit.
This one day course will show you how to assert yourself and make sure that your needs and wants are heard and understood by others.
This course will benefit anyone who briefs teams, presents internally or externally and wishes to refine their existing presentation skills and develop new ones.
Public speaking can be fun. Conquer your fear of public speaking and learn how to make an engaging, entertaining presentation.
Do you need to be a better influencer and negotiator at work? Do you need to get your point across more effectively to your boss, an audience or during a meeting? Would you like to improve your verbal communication skills?
This workshop introduces you to speech content, structure, preparation, and the delivery, preparing the presentation space and managing your nerves. There will be some practical elements to assist your understanding of the theory.
Good presentation skills allow you to communicate your message clearly whoever your audience is. They include things like the use of visual aids, using and changing the tone and volume of your voice and how you structure your presentation.
“The success of your presentation will be judged not by the knowledge you send but by what is actually received by the listener” Lilly Walters

Our experienced instructors will show you how to engage with your audience and ensure your message comes through loud and clear.
We also look carefully at how to prepare for a presentation. A large portion of it’s success will be determined by what and how you prepare.
We offer training at our centres in Guildford, London, Manchester and also at our client’s sites. Many client’s find it more convenient to ask us to come to their site to provide training.
The ability to present well is not theoretical. It is a practical skill that is only developed through deliberate practice.
This means that our classes are deliberately very interactive.
They will involve you making a number of brief presentations. You put into practice the techniques that the trainer has explained to you and learn how to implement them in real life scenarios.
We have centres in London and Guildford where we run scheduled presentation courses.
Our Guildford centre is in the Surrey Technology Centre, next door to the Royal Surrey Hospital. Our London Centre is on King William Street, very close to Bank, Tower Hill and Cannon Street tube stations.

We also frequently provide courses at our clients’ offices.
