What is it exactly that’s stopping you from giving your best presentation?
The number one fear in the UK is public speaking, and yet many companies continue to push their staff into the front line to deliver their corporate message.
We expect them to excite their audiences; to educate them; to convey a message; to influence and inspire them to buy our products; or provide us with funding or finance. And yet we don’t arm our teams with the simplest tools to help them to deliver their best and most authentic presentations. Why is that?
More to the point, what is it exactly that’s stopping you from giving your best presentation?
Alder Hey Children’s Charity Trust were asking themselves exactly these questions. In December 2016, with a follow-up session in January of this year, their fundraising team attended a masterclass delivered by veteran stand-up comedian Sam Avery (The Comedy Trust) and Engagement Specialist, Lizz Jones (Tallant Jones Ltd). This collaborative workshop showed them:
- The power of storytelling to inspire and influence others
- The importance of body language and physical presence
- How to make a presentation truly memorable
- What essential preparations you need for the big presentation
- The power of using their own personality to work for them
- Ways to grab attention and keep audiences engaged throughout
On completing the programme, Louise Barrett (Head of Corporate and Major Giving at Alder Hey Children’s Charity) had the following to say:
This experience has been invaluable for us. Every member of the team has benefited from the learning and practical experience this workshop provided, and we all feel as though we have reinvigorated our story and delivery. I thoroughly recommend this programme; and would encourage any other business leaders who rely on their teams to deliver outstanding presentations to do the same.
This programme helps organisations to pitch with more effective results, by showing their people how to give extraordinary and authentic presentations. By blending their backgrounds in the comedy and corporate worlds, Sam and Lizz help to expose and remove the barriers that prevent people from giving their best presentation.
