Speak like a Leader

Advanced Two-day Presentation Skills Course

Make the shift... from Competent to Compelling

When leaders speak, they do more than inform – ­they inspire.

Genuine emotional connection can be achieved by anyone who understands and employs the right combination of communication techniques.

Speak like a Leader is designed to help leaders, specialists and potential leaders to understand and use these techniques when speaking to groups in both formal and informal situations.

How does it work?

You come to the course with an audience and topic in mind. Then over two days, you design a presentation and deliver it to the other course participants.

Your delivery is videoed and, once you have a chance to review it and receive feedback from your fellow participants, you deliver sections of the presentation again – this time receiving coaching from the trainer on the areas you’ve identified that you want to improve.

Throughout the course you’ll try out your material and receive ideas, advice and coaching from your trainer and feedback from your colleagues.  

At the end of the course you’ll have:

  • countless new ideas for improving the effectiveness of your future presentations
  • a new appreciation of your purpose when speaking
  • increased confidence and enthusiasm for creating and delivering presentations
  • greater engagement and influence when speaking to groups.
