Presentations skills for communications agency professionals

If your presentations tend to happen around meeting tables, then learning to deliver a TED talk may not help much. That’s why this workshop covers the kind of presentation scenarios you’ll face at work, such as talking across a table to clients rather than projecting your voice to the back of an auditorium.

Presenting is one of the most important skills for agency professionals, because you’re presenting all the time in varied scenarios for all kinds of reasons. We got experienced agency staff to design a workshop specifically to help with specialised presentations PR and communications professionals may face - from pitching an idea to an editor to presenting credentials to a prospective client.

Most presentations aren’t on stages

Working in a communications agency means you’re presenting often. You’re presenting ideas, strategies and plans all the time. If you’re not presenting to clients, you’re presenting to colleagues. You’re often calling complete strangers to present over the phone. You’re trying to make brainstorms productive and of course, you’ll have to give a formal presentation now and then.

What you will get from the workshop

Become a more engaging and confident presenter. Working with a presentations coach and a small group of people in similar roles, you'll learn how to plan a good presentation then deliver it confidently. You’ll learn to capture more attention than your flashy credentials decks so people are fully engaged with you and taking in what you’re saying.

What you’ll cover on the day

We'll guide you through planning and delivering presentations in a supportive environment. Our approach gets you to practice skills several times with expert guidance.

  • Structure your presentation well so it’s easier to deliver and has more impact on the audience.
  • Harness the power of storytelling and rhetorical techniques to make your messages stick.
  • Improve your body language so you’re perceived as more confident and convincing.
  • Use your voice like a professional presenter - get your point across powerfully and be taken seriously.
  • Stay in control of your presentation while dealing with questions and answers.
  • Control your nerves and deal with the symptoms that give them away.
  • Interact with visuals and slides so they support your points instead of distracting from them.

What to expect

The best way to improve your presentation skills is practice. After we ease you into it, you’ll be presenting regularly throughout the day with guidance and feedback. The one day course involves presenting to the class several times, group work, planning, storytelling techniques, games and coaching.
