Mastering Powerful Presentations


Anyone who gives presentations to small groups or large audiences

This Training has been designed for those in positions where they must speak in front of audiences, it’s also suitable for those who are relatively new speakers who want some encouragement to speak up in meetings or who want some training before they begin making presentations on behalf of the organization.

Inexperienced or new: This course teaches the delegates how to gather their content, how to make their slides (if any is needed), how to deliver and how to make their message stand out from others.

Experienced Presenters who suffer from bad habits accumulated over time and also lack of knowledge of new tools and techniques since they picked up the knowledge years ago. This course helps these delegates to master the skill through many hands on exercises so they can leverage their current experience to polish their presentations and deliver as good as they are capable of.


By the end of this programme, the participants will be able to:

  • Identify the fundamental parameters of a good presentation
  • Establish rapport with the audience
  • Learn techniques to reduce nervousness and fear
  • Understand their strengths as a presenter and how to appeal to different types of people
  • Recognize how visual aids can create impact and attention
  • Develop techniques to create a professional presence
  • Learn different ways to prepare and organize information
  • Prepare, practice, and deliver a short presentation
  • Engage the audience and get their fullest attention
  • Deliver presentation with confidence and leave a positive and memorable experience for the audience
  • Deal with tough audiences and questions


Presenting is all about having an impact. You want everyone to understand your message and get it to stick.  After all, a presenter wants to make a viral message so that everyone will end up talking about.

A great presenter has two notable qualities: appropriate skills and personal confidence. Confidence comes from knowing what you want to say and being comfortable with your communication skills. In this programme, participants will master the skills that will make them a better speaker and presenter.
