Presenting as a Leader™

Powerful presentations motivate an audience to act. Learn how to inspire your audience to take action with presentation skills training.

Whether presenting to your team, senior leadership, or any internal or external audience, it’s imperative that you craft your message in a way that will be heard. But that’s easier said than done. Effective presentations require a successful blend of an audience-centered message, an engaging delivery, and powerful supporting visuals. There’s a lot of room for error, which is why everyone can benefit from training to become a more effective presenter. Even the most nervous speakers can gain the confidence to become inspiring presenters with formal presentation skills training and practice.

What Participants Learn in our Presenting as a Leader™ Program:

In Presenting as a Leader™, participants learn what it takes to craft and deliver presentations that motivate, inspire, and engage their audience. By bringing their own past presentations into the classroom and rebuilding them, learners have a chance to see where they typically go wrong and how to make a greater impact with their approach, their visuals, their speaking notes, and their delivery style. Both the virtual and in-person learning experiences are led by an expert facilitator and provide extensive opportunities for peer discussion, feedback, and practice. Learners will leave with the skillset, mindset, and confidence to inspire others through presentations.

In this Signature Learning Experience, participants receive the knowledge and tools to:  

  • Shift their approach to presentations from information to inspiration. 
  • Use presentations to demonstrate their leadership in a given area. 
  • Craft audience-centered messages. 
  • Build slide decks that are easy to follow, simple to understand, and beautiful to view. 
  • Use slides and visuals in delivery without being upstaged by them. 
  • Engage any audience, whether virtual or in-person, through body language, pace, eye contact, and expression. 
  • Answer questions with confidence and clarity.
