What will we cover?  

In this two-day face-to-face workshop with our presentation coaches, we dive into a structured, hands-on process to make you confident, calm and consistent at presenting on and off camera — using storytelling to format your presentations and lectures. This workshop will give you the foundations to apply our techniques to your own teaching or within your organisation.

Day one

  • What is storytelling — and why it’s the most powerful tool for teaching and capturing your audience’s attention

  • Storytelling techniques and how to incorporate them into your teaching

  • Presentation structure, from introductions and how to grab and hold your audience’s attention, and select memorable take-home messages

  • Slide design concepts and how to apply these in your own presentations

Day two

  • Confidence on stage — how to feel relaxed and in control in front of your audience 

  • Practical audience engagement and interactivity techniques

  • Use of voice, pacing and pitch to enhance your delivery

  • Bring it all together — integrating the concepts you've learned into a presentation

  • Presenting on camera with practical hands-on exercises
