Whether you speak to one person or a 1000, getting your message across in a clear, concise and engaging manner is essential to your success. Winning Presentation Skills will provide you with the proven tools, tips, and techniques you “must have” to design, develop, and deliver powerful presentations.
All of Arnold’s programs are customized to meet your needs, your challenges, and your concerns. All programs can be offered as a keynote, breakout, seminar, workshop, or training program. Some or all of the following may apply.
The comprehensive in-house program begins with a half or full day workshop for all attendees. The initial half or full day session consists of a complete overview of the tips, tools, techniques, and necessary skills you must have to deliver powerful presentations and convincingly communicate your ideas to anyone, anytime, anywhere.
After this first session, the participants will be divided up into groups of 5. Each group of 5 will meet for up to a half day. Each attendee will prepare a 5-minute presentation to give to their group. The other 4 attendees in the group and the instructor will provide critiques. All attendees will also be videotaped. We will review each tape. After reviewing the videotape, each attendee will then be offered the opportunity to deliver their same presentation over with an emphasis on eliminating their weaknesses and enhancing their strengths. Even though the instructor may be with your company for days (depending on number of attendees), no participant will be out of the office for more than one to one and half days.
This half or full day program will be an intensive, interactive, “how-to” overview of all the key aspects involved in what makes up a great presentation. This program will be very interactive with exercises, discussions, video and “how-to” content. In addition, a few people will volunteer to provide a 7 to 10 minute presentations. The purpose is for the participants to learn by watching the presentations and hearing the feedback. I will also provide feedback and provide ways to improve. We will also discuss how to build rapport, relationships and connect with others before, during and after a presentation. The half or full day program works best with a maximum of 25 people per session. This program includes:
This full day program is similar to the Group Presentation Skills Professional Development Program. The main difference is after the first day session, participants will meet the next day and have 30 minutes to one hour each in a 1 to 1 coaching session to go over specific challenges and concerns they want to work on. For example, some people may want assistance in overcoming the “fear of speaking”, ‘planning their presentation”, “engaging the audience” “persuading or influencing” or other issues. The one to one session will focus on their specific challenges, concerns and needs. Depending on the amount of participants this may take multiple days for the coaching.
