The details

This ‘one day plus’ intensive workshop incorporates practical and technical training, peer supported reflection and group coaching to help you identify and build on your presentation and public speaking style. Supplemented with post event one to one coaching, you will develop your skill set to create greater impact in your professional practice.

This will be a lively and practical day, involving fun and interactive exercises with a level of stretch and challenge designed to facilitate deep learning.

To maintain the potential for significant learning and development, delegate numbers for this workshop are limited.

“The course helped ENORMOUSLY; the small group format enabled me to practice techniques and exercises in a safe, supportive environment. The course covered the whole presentation cycle, from designing a compelling narrative, controlling nerves, presentation delivery and even how to stand to achieve maximum impact. Kenton is a wonderful trainer.” 

“Really great day – I came away feeling positive about my presenting style but with things to work on. Would definitely recommend to colleagues. Kenton is a great trainer.”

Testimonials

The course covered the whole presentation cycle, from designing a compelling narrative, controlling nerves, presentation delivery and even how to stand to achieve maximum impact.

I found this incredibly inspiring, empowering and, as I continue to reflect on its impact, for me, I think it has the potential to be a transformational experience.

This course was smashing - very personally challenging but packed with genuinely useful information and life-long skills and reflections to take away.
