How to make your leadership presentations interesting

How to make your leadership presentations interesting & engaging

How many presentations have you been to where leaders are long-winded, boring and dull and their employees, stakeholders or colleagues sit passively and long for them to finish? Maybe you have even given one like this?

Even if you are the leading expert in your area, the CEO, the Chair of the Board, or the CFO, if your audience has switched off or thinks that your speech is irrelevant, boring or too long your expertise is worth nothing - because no one is listening.

Instead, learn how to make your presentations interesting so that you engage your audience right from the start - and all the way to the end. Have people listening ... and without sacrificing the importance or accuracy of your content. When you are engaging you have more influence and your key messages are received more effectively.

This leadership presentation skills tele-class will cover how to:

  • Not be boring!
  • Adapt to each audience.
  • Use credible ways to gain the audience's attention at the beginning, middle and end.
  • Assert your key messages and avoid preambles.
  • Choose the examples, language and explanations that best fit each audience.
  • Bring even dry and technical speech topics to life.
  • Use props and PowerPoints that are relevant and interesting.
  • Ensure the audience responds when you interact.
  • Tell stories and examples well and benefit from them.

Available for private groups and organisations by request

  • Ideal for: Members of the top team and top professionals giving important presentations at conferences, seminars or events or to employees, stakeholders or peers, and who want to engage the audience. Also, for those with dry or technical details.

This was the first webinar I've attended. It was easy and a really convenient way to receive training - all in the comfort of my dining room! Rachel delivered excellent content and had plenty of great practical examples. I thoroughly recommend this type of training.

While listening to Rachel during the presentation there was a click in my mind that changed my perception about work and life completely and for good. Since then I've recommended her to two of the persons I deal with on a daily basis; my beloved wife and my boss, with great results.

Rachel provided my leadership team with a presentation skills workshop. At the risk of sounding like a cheesy American TV advert - the workshop dramatically changed how I present to others because the emphasis was on the emotional connection with the audience.

It was great to be able to do this live tele-class, in my own space and with no travel and accommodation expenses, but still being able to interact with other participants. Rachel's presentation was short, sharp and to the point; and I was able to take away so much from it, even though we only had an hour.

You were very helpful to me all those years ago. The most important thing I learned from your presentation training was that it was ok to be myself. I do not know if I ever told you that.

Your tele-class was a wonderful experience. Living in the country makes it difficult to gain access to valuable information and I find the webinar technology so easy.
