Two gurus will give expert advice on how to deliver the best-possible business presentations at a free Telford event.
Carol Ewels and Sheila Henshall, of the Always Consult business consultancy, will provide key tips on delivering effective presentations at the Marches Growth Hub Telford & Wrekin event on October 15.
The pair, part of the hub’s extended team of Growth Hub Gurus, will demonstrate how taking a structured approach helps create successful presentations and will give attendees a chance to put what they’ve learned into practice.
Claire Critchell, manager of the growth hub, which is delivered by Telford & Wrekin Council, said the event would also look at how both verbal and non-verbal communication played an important part in presentations.
"Carol and Sheila bring a wealth of experience in this area. We know that many people in business can be daunted by the prospect of presenting in front of people, but this session aims to take some of the fear out of it.
"It will be a really invaluable event for anyone who wants to build up their confidence in presenting and would like help in making sure what they say inspires and delivers a key message effectively."
By the end of the event, at the hub’s base at the University of Wolverhampton Innovation Centre in Priorslee, attendees will have the information to be able to:
Design, develop and plan a presentation
Understand the role of the presenter as a visual aid
Understand how to tailor your content to the needs of your audience
Use visual aids to add impact within your organisation
Maintain confidence, handle nerves and handle questions
Plan practice and deliver a presentation
The three-hour session gets under way at 9.15am. Book your place here
