Presentation training is crucial

If you’ve got confidence in yourself, and your communication skills then this will allow you to better communicate with others in public settings and sell your message. Having, or not having, these skills can be the difference between a great presentation and one that bomb’s. But not many are just born ‘great presenters’. It takes knowledge, time and practice to become an exceptional presenter but not to worry, Audience Alive’s presentation skills training helps guide you onto the path of presenter greatness.

Death-by-PowerPoint, Bullet-Points, Reading slides; these are just some of the mistakes today’s presenters make when trying to communicate effectively. We’ve said it once and we’ll say it again. These are boring, sleep-inducing techniques. Instead our presentation course focuses on the new skills, designs and artistry for your presentations and how to effectively use the latest interactive and multimedia technologies to light your presentation on fire! Trust us when we say that interactive presentations with interesting and slick visuals, graphics, videos and audio play like a work of art that captures your audience’s attention and brings the engagement level from 2 to 10 in minutes.

Attendees leave the presentation training course with key tools and techniques which flip their presentations from just ‘blah’ to ‘WOW’, ‘amazing’, ‘incredible’. The resulting presentation is more memorable and ultimately seals a deal or nails a point home. Our corporate presentation training can add real value to your business because it’s not solely about ‘the presentation’. Our presentation courses, offer strategic tools to convey messages with conviction and confidence, giving your staff important communication and interpersonal skills that can be used in many other settings to help them successfully sell an idea or product.

I’ve been on three of AudienceAlive’s workshops on Presentation Skills and each time I come out with a WOW experience. at first, I thought it was just me being an enthusiast for great presentations and using presentation software, but after I got AudienceAlive in to do a custom-course for the team, the vote was unanimous – it was a resounding WOW without exception from everyone in the audience. and just to put this into context – the audience were people who were ‘presenting’ for years. The greatest thing about the workshops that Audience Alive conducts that its contents are upto date, and you know that’s true because you’ve not even heard or seen these functions on PowerPoint yet (or just missed them completely the whole time). Then there’s John himself, who is a wealth of knowledge on the topic and has all the evidence to show that it works and YOU can do it as well – albeit with practice. Finally, the add-on’s – you get a ton of stuff for free, as though the knowledge and skills JQ has passed on wasn’t enough. A highly recommended workshop for anyone who is presenting to an audience. Go to AudienceAlive now, it’s never too late.
