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.
Pre-empt concerns and pace out objections. Demonstrate your understanding of their world – their position, their fears or doubts – and then offer solutions. It adds credibility and empathy and opens up the discussion.
Tell stories to make it engaging. Use stories from current affairs to draw analogies and make it meaningful. Tell stories from movies or magazines to add lightness and to help people think more broadly. Tell personal stories to create empathy, connection and rapport.
Listen and watch. Look for their reactions, listen to their pre-meeting discussions or side conversations. Listen for when someone draws breath to ask a question. Look for quizzical expressions. A great presenter is truly present to their audience and is responsive to their needs.
