OPEN MASTERCLASSES

Covid-19: In accordance with government guidelines, we will not be holding our in-person Masterclasses for the foreseeable future.

However we are running LIVE online masterclasses – full details are below.

 

 

1 DAY VIRTUAL PRESENTATION SKILLS – LIVE ONLINE MASTERCLASS

On this fast paced, highly interactive online masterclass we focus on helping you bring your presentation skills to the next level. We spend less time on theory and more time on learning by discovery. After the masterclass you will be given lifetime access to a client-only area on our website which contains links to helpful videos, books, talks, blogs and downloadable programme notes.

Although this is a group event, we make it personal to you. Before you attend the virtual masterclass (via Zoom) we send you a short online questionnaire. We use this questionnaire so you can self-assess your current skills and identify your own specific needs. This helps the facilitator to help you to get the most from the course.

The next LIVE online full day Virtual Presentation Skills Masterclass is on Wednesday 2nd December.

This highly interactive live online programme is for those who wish to improve how they prepare for and deliver virtual presentations.  While we focus on virtual presentations – the skills gained on this programme are relevant to any situation where you have to communicate verbally. This means that tools, techniques and skills are transferrable to help you to communicate with added impact in any virtual or face-to-face communications.

It is suitable for those who already have some experience presenting but want to bring their skills to the next level.     

This programme is participatory, fast-moving and will focus on you learning through discovery rather than “lecture-style” delivery.

We use a variety of interactive digital tools and delivery techniques to make this virtual programme varied and engaging. You will also receive one-to-one personalised feedback on your short introductory presentation.

During the brief one-to-one feedback we highlight what is being done well and identify an area for improvement. We give very specific instructions on how to achieve this improvement.

A few days before the course, we ask you to do a very quick reading exercise and give you a link to a video to watch, both of which we discuss during the virtual programme.

Following the course, you will be given lifetime access to a client only area on our website where we share helpful videos, books, talks and blogs.

In order to allow time for personalised feedback we limit online attendees to 8.

On this fast paced, highly interactive videoed presentation skills course we focus on getting you “on your feet” as often as we can. We spend less time on theory and more time on learning by doing. We give you a comprehensive yet compact manual with all the theory relating to preparing and delivering your presentations.

Although this is a group course, we make it personal to you. Before you attend the course we send you a short online questionnaire. We use this questionnaire so you can self-assess your current skills and identify your own specific needs. This helps the facilitator to help you to get the most from the course.

Our standard rate is €427 (ex VAT) but we do have special Early Bird rates.
