There is a common misconception that confident presenters are good presenters. Whilst self-belief can aid a strong ‘performance’, it’s vital that presenters understand what constitutes an effective presentation: how to deliver presentations that engage your audience, how to tell relevant stories that conveys your message.
At Ultimate, we can provide targeted one to one presentation skills coaching or training for a larger group on more generic skills. Remember, anyone can learn the skills to be a good presenter.
We have a passion for helping presenters deliver more effective presentations. Running a useful training or coaching programme is about leveraging our own tried-and-trusted methodology: it’s the power behind our journey towards truly inspiring, thought-provoking education and coaching. Everything we do is based on the principles of the science of communication and our own years of experience.
Our course modules cover the following key areas: The Power of Visuals, Audience Attention, Telling A Story, Memory, The Presentation, Presenter Confidence and Presentation Technology. These elements will work together to improve your overall presentation technique. Rather than being a quick one-off fix for a particular presentation, our training encourages you to think critically and constructively every time you come to develop a presentation. We believe that good presentations take time and effort to put together and want you to get into a similar mind-set.
We challenge the traditional mind-set of filling slides with explanatory text and instead teach skills based on science and research. Audiences are capable of reading a lot faster than a speaker can talk. Simply reading off a slide then, is highly ineffective as the audience will only tune you out. Many presentation training courses focus on improving your body language, tone of voice or posture. Whilst these aspects are important, they simply don’t reach the root of your problem.
Instead, at Ultimate we tackle the fundamental issues with your presentation method. Through the course of your training we will open you up to putting visuals at the heart of your presentation, removing the temptation of text-heavy slides. We’ll help you deliver information in a compelling way that engages and retains the audiences’ retention, without you having to be a showy performer.
All of our training courses can be tailored according to your needs and specifications, at a location of your choosing. We can also work with a wide range of presentation technologies.
At Ultimate we believe new projects should be undertaken with great amount of consideration and vigilant planning and research. You can be assured everything we do, will be the best for you and your brand and not what is best for us!
