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.
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.
