Presenting With Influence

Learn how to pitch, persuade and present like a pro. Minimise your nerves, maximise your confidence.

Duration: 1 day


Presenting for Influence is a comprehensive public speaking training system for creating highly effective presentations.

Based on rigorous study of the best public speakers in the world, this course shows you how to select your topic, tell powerful stories, and master your delivery. Unlike most courses on this topic, we cover both the content creation (creating the presentation content) as well as the delivery of the content (public speaking).

In this practical, hands-on workshop you’ll learn the strategies and tips for being brilliant at speaking. Speeches, sales presentations, media comments, job interviews, Q&A sessions, panels, and more – you’ll learn how to have influence whenever you speak.

  • Professional speakers wanting to learn some new ‘tricks’ to add to their suite of tools

Topics include:
  • All our trainers have extensive business credentials and also work as professional actors in film, stage and TV
