So you, or the people you work with or are organising a conference for, are going to have to make a presentation.

The conference location can be stunning, the food delicious, the AV top-notch ... all the pieces in place ... but if you (or others who are speaking) can’t engage the delegates ... really grab and maintain their attention and interest ... and then communicate your information with effectively, then the actual learning outcomes of the event can be quite disappointing.

A person's Presentation Skills are also a vital component of their personal brand, so it pays to ensure each person, each organisation and each important piece of information is represented with clarity and confidence.

Darren offers Presentation Skills coaching for groups, as well as for individuals who may wish to polish their preparation for a specific presentation.
