Presentation Skills

27th September 2017 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


Are you fearful of speaking to a live audience?

Then this is the course for you!

This course will be interactive; showing skills, techniques and proven exercises that participants can use to overcome these fears.

Hints and tips to be covered (a handout will be distributed to take home):

  • Importance of good preparation and content
  • Importance of dress, but be comfortable
  • Be confident!

Delegate participation will include:

  • Body Language – stance, using your arms and working the presentation space.
  • Vocal Exercises – breathing technique, tone and exercises to make sure you’re heard

(NB: Some exercises will be static, some will require a small amount of movement)

The course will be led by Karen Witchalls-Plunkett, who has 20 years professional experience both in front of and behind the camera as a journalist/presenter and news producer and is now using her experience to help others develop confidence in presenting.


Comment from a previous attendee:  Both Andrew & myself thoroughly enjoyed, what is a slightly terrifying subject! Karen made the presentation both fun & interactive. However the best thing was the really practical hints & tips she provided, which I have since implemented. I still have a long way to go until I can become a TV newsreader but my BBC arms alone (I have been told!) have improved my presentations.

A great morning well spent.

Cost:  FREE to Herts Start Up Programme clients. £45 for others
