This training course is for people who want to knock their next presentation out of the park.
You know that time you delivered a presentation and froze on stage, or you crumbled during a pitch and completely lost your train of thought? What about when you forgot your content and spent the whole session reading your slides? Or maybe you were so nervous you nailed a bottle of wine at lunch and slurred your way through the deck you prepared last minute?
If any of these sound familiar, you need to join us for Confident Communication.
What will you get from this workshop?
Delivering pitches, presentations and public speaking is part and parcel of a career in marketing. Get used to the idea and get good at it so you don’t have to worry. That’s what Confident Communication is all about.
In this full day workshop delivered in person, we will develop your communications skills, building your confidence at delivering presentations, pitches and public speaking in any situation. Whether you are fairly accomplished, or introverted and inexperienced, this course will help you to gain more speaking confidence by developing your natural abilities, helping you to engage and entertain your audiences like never before.
This workshop has a special focus on the art of the performance – the elements of stage craft that will help to deliver high impact presentations, every time.
By completing this training course you will be able to:
- make a great first impression
- show confidence and control your nerves
- write rich, concise material with a story
- engage an audience and keep their attention through stage craft
- communicate authentically
- use visuals effectively
- adapt to the unexpected
The workshop will be held in central London with a maximum of six attendees. It will be in interactive throughout and you will be gently pushed out of your comfort zone to learn enhanced speaking techniques through direct experience.
You will need to prepare and bring with you a 5-minute presentation on any subject you like. This can be in simple note format or with visuals if you wish. You will deliver this two – three times during the workshop, building and iterating it into a thing of utter power: impactful, persuasive and easy to deliver.

“I really enjoyed the confident communication course. I think I might finally have turned a corner overcoming my total fear of presenting! It felt like a very safe environment to learn and be coaxed along. I got a real buzz from the last session when I thought that actually, I can do it! I will try and remember that feeling for the next time!”
