Presentation training

Paul offers both public and in house training to help equip staff to present with confidence. Here’s why:

Ever sat in a presentation and wished the speaker had a better idea of how to deliver their message effectively?

You see, we can all talk. And in everyday life we’re faced with situations where we have to speak, to sell, to persuade or to influence others. But the problem many of us face is getting people to listen. Getting people to be engaged, to be inspired by what we are saying.

Right now there are millions of presentations taking place around the world. But how many of them are really engaging with their audience?

That’s why it pays to learn from an expert.

The majority of presentation skills courses are conducted by people who don’t present for a living. But Paul McGee is different. He speaks around the world. It’s his job. It’s what he does. And he now has over twenty years experience in teaching people how to engage, persuade and impact any audience, whatever the size.

SUMO Presentation Masterclass (Part Two)

Who is it for?

This one day workshop provides a unique opportunity to be coached personally by Paul McGee, one of the UK’s leading presenters and presentation coaches. Strictly limited to only eight places, the day will be of significant benefit to the more experienced presenter or those who are needing to present more in their current role. (Completion of the SUMO Presentation Masterclass Part One is advisable but not compulsory.)

You will learn:

  • How to gain the competitive edge when making presentations
  • Proven ways to influence and persuade an audience whatever the situation
  • How to disarm a negative and sceptical audience
  • How to ensure people are more receptive and open to your ideas – even ones they may initially resist
  • How to think quickly on your feet and remain calm under pressure

This day is a highly participative workshop where learning and discovery comes through practising the skills as well as observing others. Because of the nature and style of the day and in order to maximise the benefit to yourself the maximum group size is eight people.

You will be required to make a presentation (prepared beforehand lasting a maximum of ten minutes).

Fee: Only £397 + VAT including lunch, refreshments and all training materials.
