Course overview:

From the moment we are born to the moment we die, we are in some way communicating with our outside world. But none of us are magically born with a set of skills that will automatically mean  you can communicate with influence and impact. You can be an expert in your subject, but just like when you do Karaoke, knowing the words to a song doesn’t make you a great singer – and neither does and being an expert mean you can automatically communicate your expertise.

The good news is, however we currently rate ourselves as a communicator, we can all learn to become better. In this practical, engaging session, Sunday Times bestselling author Paul McGee who has been a professional speaker for nearly 30 years will provide insights, tips and practical tools to help us become more effective and persuasive – so that when we speak people really listen.

Topics covered:

The seven major mistakes of presenting and how to overcome them

How to manage anxiety and use nerves to your advantage

The 12 ways to make your presentation memorable and engaging

How to make slides sizzle and sell rather than induce deep states of sleep
