The ‘High Impact Presentation Skills’ half-day workshop for HDR candidates investigates how to take control of all presentations and workplace communications with increased confidence and commitment to content. By exploring proven dramatic disciplines, participants creatively explore vocal and physical techniques to help promote engagement and command attention. By the end of the session participants will have been shown a variety of techniques to be more persuasive and influential communicators, who can convey any message with presence, poise and clarity.

In this interactive workshop, you will learn how to:

  • free and strengthen your voice to improve how you communicate
  • combat nerves and steady your voice using professional acting techniques
  • command attention and influence others through using your voice and body language
  • breathe life into your presentations and tell stories in a compelling manner using the power of your voice
  • maximise your physical impact to help you speak and think clearly so you can present successfully in any situation
  • strengthen your presence in the workplace to become an authoritative and effective communicator

This workshop is for HDR candidates.
