Explore how to incorporate voice, performance practice and actor training techniques into presentations.

Do you sometimes feel nervous when presenting to a group? It’s a common reaction, but this course can give you the tools to stay calm and engaged when the spotlight is on you, and ensure your message resonates with your audience. We will use exercises drawn from actor training focusing on body, breath and voice to enable you to calm your nerves and own your space. We will explore dramatic devices and vocal techniques to bring your content to life, and consider how to frame your message and get it heard. The day’s work will culminate with individual workshopping with tailored feedback to practice and embed the skills we’ve covered.

You will have the opportunity to:

  • Identify your presentation style and what gets in the way of you connecting to your audience
  • Learn focus and relaxation exercises working through body, breath and voice to find calm and confidence when presenting
  • Build a range of techniques to incorporate passion and animation into your presentation, creating rapport with your audience.
  • Discover how to structure a presentation to ensure your key messages are heard and understood

Presenting with Confidence is led by a fully qualified Voice and Communications Trainer. Group sizes are limited to 10 participants to ensure maximum impact and individual feedback. The course will run 10am - 5pm and is held at one of Central's London venues.
