We Have Recently Run This Course For:
When Waitrose wanted their staff and suppliers to deliver winning presentations they called us.
There was a requirement for all levels of management to present in a professional manner both to internal groups as well as to external suppliers.
A 2 day presentations course was designed and delivered that focused on how to structure presentations and how to deliver them in a confident and convincing way. Advanced communication skills were also covered as were several techniques and strategies for overcoming nerves and answering difficult questions.
Over 120 managers went through the programme in total.
Now their managers can control their nerves and deliver confident and powerful presentations that are crisp, clear and without the waffle!
