Course overview

At no time in history have our interpersonal communication and presentation skills been as important as they are now. Today globally, anybody who is slightly better than the competition at expressing their ideas can quickly see a massive upturn in their fortunes. The ability to convince others that those ideas matter is the single greatest skill we possess.

We all have the potential to excite and ignite the imaginations of others. Combining words and ideas to move people to action is a fundamental skill.

Whether large scale presentations, a regular circle of influence, ad hoc personal interaction or media appearances, every word, look, gesture, whether pre-planned or off the cuff can have a profound effect on our own and other people’s lives.

Mark will work with delegates to develop skills and practice techniques. There will be a limited number of opportunities to work on with Mark on a one-to-one basis after the course for direct coaching.
