Simply Presenting Stretch


1 day – 6 participants

As the name implies Simply Presenting Stretch works with experienced, confident presenters to: take full command of the room; create instant and ongoing rapport; be agile and fluent on the spot; and become masters of story-telling and engagement.  In short, this workshop is about full ownership, presence and power.

Make it personal. Tailor the presentation for their departments and for them personally. Mention names. Use examples from their world. Highlight benefits that are meaningful for them. The more you talk about them, the more they’ll think of you.

Pause regularly, to check for questions, to emphasise a point, to sip some water or to check your slides. Pausing allows digestion but also adds gravitas.

Vary your tone and pace. Add energy and enthusiasm to good news or stories. Be serious and slower to go through business cases or risk analyses. Keep it varied to keep their attention.

“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”
