Impactful Presenting Program

Make your lectures and presentations persuade and inspire like never before.  Lead from the stage for more influence, more buy-in.  Be an ambassador for your ideas, your expertise and your personal brand.  All whilst feeling confident and in control!

Tara has found that an additional,unexpected but powerful benefit of this course is the participants
getting to know, and bonding, with each other.  The longer duration of
the course provides the opportunity of relationships to develop and
the course format gives space for dialogue and sharing.  This leads to
participants having a stronger working relationship long after the
course has finished.

Combining the (often forgotten) fundamentals with the newest research learn and practise approaches that will deliver compelling presentations and lectures.  Improve your impact by learning tools to communicate your ideas & knowledge with clarity, conviction and interest.  We will cover:

  • How and why you need to be super precise on the outcomes you want. 
  • How to craft succinct, powerful message/s. This will guide the rest of the preparation; making it easier to put compelling material together. 
  • Learn how to structure your presentations and lectures for upmost clarity and focus.  
  • Learn how to create impactful content that talks to heart and minds. 
  • Learn how to create strong beginnings and even stronger endings to connect with your students/ audience.
  • Find out why you must tell stories.  And how to do it in a natural, engaging way.
  • How to use props, Powerpoint and similar visual aids to enhance and support your presentation rather than overpower it.
  • Being your best self.  Delivering your material in a natural, confident, professional manner.  We will look at body language, presence, vocal variety and use of space.

To ‘raise the bar’ of existing presentation skills. To create your best presentation/lecture ever – taking away the tools to consistently produce dynamic & interesting presentations and lectures.
