We have all spent time attending business presentations that simply did not hold our attention. In fact, it is estimated that 1.26 million PowerPoint presentations are started somewhere in the world every hour. Most of these take place in offices and conference centers as part of everyday business life. A great many of these presentations are poorly prepared, weakly presented and contain far too much information. The audience gets bored or confused and the opportunity to have a real impact is wasted. It doesn't need to be that way. You can transform your presentations skills quickly, easily and cost effectively by enrolling on this course. Business presentation training doesn't need to cost the earth.
Take that next career advancing professional step and decide to stand out from the crowd. 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.
Hello there - thanks for looking at my courses.
You're probably wondering why on earth you should work with me through my online courses, or possibly more directly.
Well, I have been a learning and development professional for almost 30 years now. In that time I have worked with a very wide range of organisations and people from all walks of life, and many different countries and backgrounds.
My focus is on helping people learn skills, techniques and behaviours that will help them in their everyday lives. That might be in business and their professional lives or more personal development outside of work. What matters to me is that the learning is not simply just theoretical, but practically applicable. Knowing stuff is good, but we grow when we learn to actually apply that knowledge. That's where we add value.
In support of this approach, I have a lot of experience to back it up. I have for 20 years held senior management positions in both public and private sector organisations. I have also run my own consultancy and people development businesses for almost 18 years working with many global brands in a variety of business sectors, family businesses, business start ups and individuals seeking to develop their own skills and abilities.
With all this experience and expertise I have come to realize that a great deal of successful business and people management comes down to effective communication. In theory this appears straight forward, yet the reality is frequently much more challenging. This challenge is summed up by one of my favorite quotes;
'the single biggest problem with communication is the illusion it is taking place'
George Bernard Shaw.
When I'm asked about what I do, I have been known to describe myself as an interpreter, and when asked about which languages I say English to English. It often raises a smile as people realize what I mean by that.
