Practice to Present

This short video gives you a sample of the interactive nature of our training programmes and what you can expect to accomplish on just a one day “taster” course.

For a couple of years I have been involved with the talent division in the UN World Food Programme and as part of their learning path for Junior Professional Officers we have designed a public speaking and presenting module.

If you’re laughing you’re learning and this was a lot of fun.

If you eliminate powerpoint and allow human beings to use their creativity and imagination you can deliver great presentations with real power to persuade.

RIP Tony Benn

" >

Tony Benn died this week (March 14 2014). He was a passionate and extremely talented speaker in the House of Commons. This short extract from a 1990’s speech is typical of his style and highlights his clarity of message, emotional appeal and consummate delivery.

He balances pathos with facts and data (logos). His credibility (ethos) comes from how he looks and sounds, his reputation and his conviction.

Observe how he glances down to check his notes but then looks up and delivers to the whole audience.

What else do you notice?
