Presentation Skills

Training Information

Effective presenters can weave what seems like magic; they articulate complex information, connect with people and inspire them at the same time. We draw on our experience in T.V, theatre and teaching to distill a set of tools and practices that can improve effectiveness as a presenter. 

We use storytelling to help people understand the narrative behind their vision and their actions. We use a combination of improvisational theatre and speaking skills to help participants craft a story that speaks to a leadership purpose or conveys information in meaningful ways.

The Polykala presentation skills training is divided into three parts that culminate into a practice session with personalised feedback and coaching. We begin by exploring the body and voice as the basic tools of presentation. Next, storytelling and the key considerations of presentation are presented. We examine how visual aids can be used to anchor and animate presentations. Participants will be invited to present throughout the 1-2 day program and receive sensitive personalised feedback. 

This is a practical, highly involved training program. It is for people who want to take their presentation skills to the next level. Participants will be on their feet learning by doing, reflecting and refining.

"I learned how to get out of the way, by which I mean; I learned the possibility of getting my ego out of the way to a new degree in order to serve others. That has been incredibly liberating, as well as energizing."
Jon Osborne - Human Centred Design and Innovation Lead, ARUP Australia
