Our presentation skills training works
Don’t just take it from us – here’s what some our clients have to say
“Our design personnel frequently present at meetings, conferences or to the media so it is crucial that they are able to represent our company and themselves in the best possible way. We’ve been using Louise’s training services for many years to ensure that is the case. We include her media & presentation skills training in the induction of every new member of staff and have done so for over a decade. This level of preparedness has made a big difference to our team members’ ability and confidence and the way that Apex is viewed by a global audience”.
Founder & Director
“I’m used to making business presentations but when I was asked to speak at two big events, on very different topics, it was a big challenge. Louise helped me refine the structure and flow of my presentations, showed me how to use my body language, and helped me to engage with the different audiences. I understood much more about what I should be doing and what difference it would make. Aside from making me feel so much more confident when I stood up on the stage both in Birmingham and Washington, Louise’s advice ensured that the audience was fully engaged all the time, resulting in great feedback after the presentation/interview session. I can’t thank Louise enough, for her patience and dedication; the training helped me a lot … and I know it will help me in the future too.”
“Louise clarified the objectives, worked with me as the event leader and prepped meticulously ensuring that the investment we made in the event was really maximised. Not only was she engaging, professional and the perfect host but her experience in live TV meant that she always had one eye on the audience and their needs.”
“I sit on a lot of panels and do lots of talks. It’s not my favourite part of my work though, and I was conscious that I wasn’t very natural at this stuff and had self-taught (not!) over many years . So I booked in for a session. It made a huge difference. I still refer back to Louise’s notes whenever I’m putting together a presentation”.
“We run a travel scholarship for our Lower Sixth students, which requires the winning pairs to present the findings from their trip to an audience of about 250, which includes their peers, the Headmaster, governors and their parents. Some find this an intimidating challenge. Louise has coached 40 different pupils in the last five years, with her expertise and guidance in advance of the big night being transformational. It can be a tough audience and the training helps students to take to the stage feeling comfortable and confident about what they’re going to say and how they’re going to say it.”
Head of History
“We need to be sure that everyone who’s representing the Honda brand is doing so in the best way possible so we’ve put some of our management teams, as well as drivers and riders, through training with Goodman Media. Louise put together different programmes to reflect their varied needs and job requirements and the feedback we had from all the participants afterwards was very positive”.
