Our training starts with reading material sent to you in advance of the workshop so you are across the theory before we meet. That enables us to make the most of our time together where we will conduct simulated speeches and presentations on camera, review them and repeat the process over and over to give you the skills to present with confidence.
Our presentation workshops are run over a half-day or full-day and are completely customised to your needs and what you want to achieve.read more

Have you ever watched a colleague conduct a presentation that was information rich and was accompanied by numerous PowerPoint slides laden with text? Did you remember much of what they had to say? My guess is you answered yes to my first question and no to the second. This style of presentation is common and is almost always unsuccessful when it comes to having an audience remember your key points and respond to your calls to action.
At Media Success, we will teach you more effective ways to engage with your audience to transform your presentation from a dull information dump to an engaging and memorable performance that generates the results you want.
Mastering Presentation Skills and Developing the Skills Needed to Present Effectively
A successful presentation must be audience focused so researching your audience beforehand is a vital first step when preparing. Many clients are used to writing out their speech in full but this way of preparing is fraught. Words on a page which are written for the eye and not the ear just don’t work for a presentation. You won’t sound conversational and if you read your speech verbatim, you are guaranteed of boring your audience and wasting an opportunity to connect with them. As an expert in your field, it can be tempting to impart as much information as you can but it is important not to give in to this temptation!
An engaging presentation usually focuses on no more than five key points. By limiting it to five, you are more likely to have your audience remember and act on what you say. Your key points must be supported by stories as they make them memorable. Our training will see you master storytelling techniques to form deep connections with your audience.
What if I Forget What I Want to Say?
Our training will show you how to present where you can still refer to notes but are not captive to them. This will enable you to use your time before an audience to connect with them through effective body language and eye contact and engaging, memorable storytelling which supports your key points.
How Do I Deal With My Nerves?
Many of us find speaking in front of people intimidating and nerve racking but that doesn’t have to be your reality. There is no simple quick fix to curing your anxiety and a little bit of ‘nervous energy’ can actually work to your advantage.
What does work to overcome nerves is extensive video rehearsal which anyone can do using their smartphone. Just as all good entertainers, singers, and actors rehearse, so should speakers! Too often clients’ will protest that they don’t have the time to rehearse their presentation but there is always time for anything that you regard as important. Imagine you were drafting a legal document for a client. There is no way you would send it to them without it being thoroughly checked first.
So why would you risk damaging your reputation by not thoroughly rehearsing your presentation? Our presentation training will see you take part in several on-camera simulations which we will record and watch back. By incorporating our feedback, you will notice a dramatic improvement by the end of the workshop. To consolidate your skills, Media Success will provide two, one-hour follow-up sessions in the first 12 months following our workshop.
