Personal Presentation Ltd

December 7th, 2020 

About the Event: 

Evolved over 30 years, it unites head, heart and body so that your personal communication works at its best – whether it’s a conversation, meeting, interview, presentation or pitch.

In this one hour introduction, we’ll look at:

  • How to be visible as you wherever you go.

  • What drives people’s perception of us – and the Perception Gap.

  • The difference between an amateur and a professional approach to communication.

  • How we can take more control of the way we are seen, and boost our confidence, impact and effectiveness in any situation – even in those wobbly places (and we nearly all have them!) where you may perhaps feel exposed, uncomfortable or vulnerable.

  • A sample of the ‘performance toolkit’.

  • How these techniques apply to ‘telepresence’ when communicating via virtual platforms.

The coaching is highly practical, and the session will give you some great take-outs that you can start to use straightaway. And it should be fun!
