Presenting with Confidence Workshop

Date: Wednesday 27 June 2018 from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM

Overview

Winning a pitch takes more than a solid strategy, more than a brilliant creative concept and more than pricing competitively.  People win pitches.  For an idea to really capture the imagination it needs to be presented by engaging and compelling speakers who can communicate an idea and tell its story with clarity, personality and enthusiasm.  This highly interactive workshop uses techniques from improvisation to give you the skills to present more confidently.  You will gain insights that will help find your unique style, come off-script and cope with nerves.

Who is the course for?

This workshop is ideal for anyone who gives presentations as part of their role. 

Course Structure

This is a fully interactive, fun and energetic workshop that takes place at the London Improv Theatre.  Topics covered during the session include:

  • Yes and... An introduction to improvisation via techniques and exercises
  • The art of story telling
  • Stage presence - Gesture, body language and eye contact
  • Presenting without slides and how to talk off-script but stay on topic
  • Dealing with challenging questions

At the end of the session you will have the opportunity to put into practice everything you've learned with a short presentation devised in collaboration with other members of the group.
