The powerful presenter

Get your message across more effectively and with more impact

Professionals and leaders are expected to deliver a message effectively and with impact. By means of this, they need to give full weight to their own interests and to the interests of the listener. Clear storylines help bring the message across clearly, just as establishing the right perspective and supporting your message with appropriate body language. With this course you will be able to deliver your message more effectively and with greater impact.

Why do so many people feel tense before and after giving a presentation? You are good at your work and in what you do. Why then is telling a convincing story so difficult? And why is there both during and after a presentation so much noise?

You give presentations regularly and want to become more effective in them. Of course you would like to speak more naturally and to keep to your storyline. And it goes without saying, that you would like to deal easily with listeners that may have different expectations than you. Above all, you want to be the messenger and be less dependent on sheets and other accessories. In order to help yourself to make a step in this direction, it is valuable to become more sure of yourself, in moments when all eyes are trained on you.

What is your impact during and after presentations?

At the end of this module you will:

  • In your preparation be able to give proper justice to your own interests and to those of the public.
  • Be able to create clear storylines that differentiate between main topics and side issues.
  • Know how to position a statement so that you have the public’s attention right from the start.
  • Learn techniques that will give you the skills to react to signals from the public more compatibly.
  • Learn how to use your body language more effectively to support your message.
  • Become more aware of your own convictions, which limit you during your presentation.
  • Become more proficient at implementing positive arguments to get the results you want.
  • Learn how to make, with less words, more impact.

    “This training was an eye-opener for me, one of the best soft-skill training I have followed.”
    Hans Onvlee (ASML)
    “A fantastic workshop that helps you to communicate your message in a structured and compact manner to your audience. In addition to the content, I especially enjoyed and learned from the interactive design and attention to themes such as authenticity, body language and impact.”
    Joris van den Aker (TNO-ESI)
    “I really enjoyed this training and happily recommend it. There are many trainings that provide a framework for structuring a story and gives tips on how to present it well. What I thought stood out in this one was that we were encouraged to think very carefully about who we are, what our strengths and weaknesses are and how we can consider this in our presentations. Thanks to the intimate and sharing atmosphere the trainer created in the training, I learned a lot about myself and about my colleagues during these two days.”
