Simply Presenting

SIMPLY PRESENTING

2 days – 6 participants

With over 20 years of experience in presentation skills training, Carolyn is masterful at coaching small groups to achieve maximum focus, clarity, rigour, structure, confidence, presence and engagement in a style that is entirely natural, sincere and authentic for each person. 

Simply Presenting is a well established and much loved workshop that ensures presenters save massive time in preparation and walk away feeling two inches taller.  The common complaint we hear on completion is “I wish I’d done this years earlier!”

Tips

You’re not born with ‘charisma’. Charisma is a function of knowledge, conviction, clarity and sincerity. Say what you mean and mean what you say and charisma will be your by-product.

Often it’s the most experienced and confident presenters who have the least focus. The sheer quantity of knowledge and information works against absolutely clarity of the key messages. Great presenters are great declutterers!

The antidote to being ‘self-conscious’ is to be ‘audience-conscious’. The more you think ‘I’ve got to look good, I’ve got to be impressive, I’ve got to have all the answers, I’ve got to get it right’ the more stress you create for yourself. The more you think ‘what can I do to support them, guide them, demonstrate the benefits to them, point out the risks for them?’ the less self-conscious and the more relaxed you’ll be.

“Until I met Carolyn and listened to her audio course, I thought that to be a good presenter, I needed to morph into a different person. Carolyn helped me realise that being true to my unique style and personality is my greatest asset when presenting. She provides really useful tools and techniques that helped me develop my very own formula for presentation success”
