Mastering Your Presentations

No-nonsense communication strategies for getting business done

This comprehensive presentation skills workshop is interactive and realistic. It builds the skills business presenters need to communicate their message effectively and move business forward.

Learning Objectives

Throughout the class, participants work on their own real-life presentations. Taught by two instructors, the workshop uses video-recorded exercises and private instructor-led video review to help participants identify and develop the skills they need to succeed. Workshop participants learn to

  • Frame their presentations so that they are listener-focused and persuasive
  • Create effective visual aids to support key messages
  • Manage nervousness and gain self-awareness
  • Engage listeners in a comfortable, flexible conversation
  • Be clear and concise
  • Use visuals effectively whether seated or standing, projected, hand-held, or hard copy
  • Think on their feet
  • Facilitate fruitful interactions with listeners
  • Get the business of the presentation done effectively and efficiently

Getting Business Done & Growing Leadership Capability
Everything we do is designed to help people get business done and grow their capabilities. While a particular workshop may focus on a specific business goal—closing a deal, making a decision, learning something new, or gaining alignment—every workshop is designed to help the participants be more comfortable, effective, and confident communicators. When employees communicate more effectively, leadership capability increases, and careers advance. This brings positive results for your team and company.


Blended Learning
Mastering Your Presentations includes pre-work and access to eCoach. Participants receive reusable job aids, reference materials, and their own in-class videos to help reinforce what they learn in class. Attendees also receive a copy of The Orderly Conversation: Business Presentations Redefined.

Private Coaching and Video Review
Capturing learners on video as they work on their real-life content, which is followed by private video playback and coaching, is an essential element to this training. It helps workshop participants understand their natural strengths (and weaknesses) and grow their self-awareness so that they can apply what they learn in class to the variety of situations they face outside of it.

Post Workshop Coaching
To help workshop participants succeed, especially when the stakes are high, consider adding post workshop coaching. This hour-long one-on-one follow-up takes place virtually and may be conducted any time after the workshop. Individuals always work with one of the instructors from their workshop to ensure continuity and mutual trust.

Tailoring
During the tailoring process, Turpin modifies the workshop to meet the specific needs of the business and each individual attending the training.

Intended For
Professionals taking this workshop should have some business presentation and PowerPoint experience, but not everyone needs to be at the same level. Often a wide range of skills and experience provides the richest learning environment.
