You will learn this in Presentation skills

Imagine standing in front of your audience and engaging them with your inspiring story. Wouldn't it be wonderful to achieve this every time you speak to a group? To engage your audience, you need knowledge of your topic and its relevance to their needs. What's in it for them? Why would they listen to you? 

In this training, you will learn to plan, structure and prepare your presentations with a specific audience in mind. You will work on handling challenging behavior and get past your speech anxiety.

With the advanced Virtual Reality App, specially developed by Schouten & Nelissen, you can practice endlessly at home. You present to a real virtual audience, receive feedback about your use of voice and find out to what extent you retain attention.

The following subjects are covered:

  • How to plan, structure and prepare your presentations
  • Optimum match of purpose, target group and situation
  • Expression: your presentation's liveliness
  • Practice using presentations that you prepared
  • Techniques to deal with stress
  • Dealing with limiting thoughts
  • Dealing with the audience's annoying behavior
  • Inspiring presentations - visuals and metaphors
  • Dealing with questions
  • Improvisation

New Heroes

During this training you will have access to the online platform New Heroes and you will work actively with assignments from the New Heroes learning journeys. You can also continue to work on your own personal strength, communication and leadership skills on your own initiative. Everything at your own pace, wherever and whenever you want.

Results

  • Inspire and connect with your audience, and deliver your message with impact

Target audience

You work at management level. You have given few presentations, or do so regularly but want to get a better grip on best practices. You often feel very tense when you have to give a presentation. It is hard work for you to keep your audience engaged. That is why you want to improve your skills in speaking to groups.

Programme

Start and end measurement

This course improves your skills. We can guarantee that. How? Before you start your course, you take a scan. This determines your starting level and helps set the right goals. You receive a personal report. That way, you know exactly where you stand, what you want to accomplish, and how to get there. Your trainer helps you to focus and develop, in order to reach your full potential. After your training is done, you take another scan. This end measurement shows how much you’ve grown, and where you can still develop your skills further.

Course days

The total duration of the training course is 6 weeks. The training course consists of an online kick-off and 2 blocks of 1 day. Your time investment is approximately two hours of self study a week: theoretical and practical through the MijnSN learning community.

Block 1 and 2

  • 1 day from 9.30 AM till 5.00 PM

You train virtual? Then we modify the course days: a training that original takes one day, will be virtual in two days of 3,5 hours. In this way we ensure that you do not spend full days behind your screen and you stay fresh enough to absorb the information. View the schedule for your course days and times.

You will commence several practical assignments within your own organization, selecting a mentor to supervise and stimulate your learning process - before the first meeting.
