Presentation Mastery is a hands on program designed to equip participants with the following skills:

  • The ability to understand the audience and their needs

  • How to edit content to find the most important information

  • How to create slide decks that people actually want to watch

  • An understanding and application of design principles

  • How to critique a presentation of any kind, including theirs

86% of executives stated that being an effective communicator had a direct impact upon their career.

This program has a workshop focus. Participants will develop, or redo, a presentation of their own from start to finish. Each participant will receive three hours of 1:1 presentation coaching.

Ian’s presentation training aids are really making a difference. I just completed training over 500 employees and contractors in H&S requirements for major plant repairs. It was very interactive especially the group sessions, I had to stop the discussion not start it!
