Breakthrough Presentation Skills Training I

This presentation skills training will transform how you engage an audience as you learn powerful, new storytelling skills and public speaking strategies!
How You Succeed – Just because you speak or present does not mean you are heard! You have less than 30 seconds to engage your audience, and you must overcome shrinking attention spans. This presentation skills training is different from others, as it backed up with behavioral research to help you become a more powerful storyteller and public speaker. You will learn corporate presentation skills and PowerPoint training strategies to capture and hold your audience's attention. Unlike most public speaking courses, Benchmark's approach transforms how you organize and deliver presentations, so you will increase stakeholder engagement and influence audience beliefs and actions. You will learn how to break through dozens of audience filters that can impede your ability to be heard – such as emotions, beliefs, perspectives, values, culture, criteria and more. You will discover presentation skills that allow you to earn permission to be heard! Our coaches are highly experienced - they have led countless presentation skills training sessions for Fortune 500 groups around the country. They are also Certified Master Practitioners in Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), the study of communication skills behavior and language. They have transformed careers with top soft skills training, public speaking training and storytelling skills.
What You Will Learn – You will also learn how to improve your Credibility and Likability Factors, so you present clear and compelling information, while also connecting with your audience at a human level. In addition, you will practice presentation delivery skills to transform your use of space and nonverbal cues. Psychology Today says your audience processes small clues, everything from voice tone to posture, and forms a larger picture about you in their minds. You will become more aware of nonverbal communication skills; you will also learn how to improve your PowerPoint skills, use of presentation themes, sound bites, visual language, props and much more.
Storytelling Skills Training – Storytelling is a foundational presentation skill, and you will learn the verbal and nonverbal skills necessary to become an effective corporate storyteller. You will learn language cues to advance your storytelling training skills. From the smallest staff meeting, to a conference call, to a keynote address, learning storytelling skills is a worthwhile investment for you and your organization! Our team is passionate about presenting – and our goal is to give you presentation skills training that you need to be your very best!
