How to present

  • Breather 27 Provost Street London, England, N1 7NH UK (map)

There is no substitute for expertise – but the information in your head is only truly valuable if it can be clearly communicated to other people: customers, colleagues, investors or bosses. In this course we’ll give you the skills to distill your expertise into a compelling story, and present it to an audience. 

You’ll leave the course with a repeatable set of techniques and tricks for presenting with style, the confidence to step in front of an audience, and a pack full of useful tools and resources.

Sessions will include: 
- Creating a coherent narrative
- Design tips and tricks
- Presenting with impact
- Refining your pitch, and trouble-shooting

Who it’s for

This course is ideal for creatives, managers, entrepreneurs, analysts or academics who know their stuff, but are less confident at presenting in person. You could be pitching a business idea, presenting at a conference or unveiling a new project – by the end of the day, you'll be armed with practical techniques for ensuring an award-winning performance.

How big will the class be? 
The maximum number of attendees will be 18, which is comfortable for the room size and ideal for a mix of group, individual and whole class exercises.

Do I need to bring a laptop? 
There’s no need to bring a laptop, unless you want to use it to take notes. The focus of the course will be on developing your presenting skills, so we won’t be getting distracted by using particular pieces of software or tools.
