Powerful Presentations Training Seminar in Germany

This 2-day presentation skills training workshop (also available online, in English and German) is designed to engage participants in a step-by-step guided approach, with their own topics, to making powerful presentations in every dimension of their talk. This includes developing a coherent structure, writing for flow and impact, speaking convincingly and authentically (you will be filmed 2 times), and breaking free of PowerPoint text slides. We will also include, as an option, concrete recommendations on how to adapt your presentation specifically to different cultures around the world. This presentations skills workshop is appropriate for those giving business or scientific talks, for sales professionals, for TED-Talk speakers, or simply for those needing general public speaking skills. Whatever your current level, this presentation seminar will take you to the next level and beyond. The open-seminar version of our presentation skills seminar is held in Munich, Germany.

Method

We believe that presenting is a skill, like learning to drive or play golf. It has to be practiced repeatedly to develop competency. That’s why we only have small groups in attendance – so that everyone has a chance to practice many times. At the International Presentation Academy we put the participant at the center of our training with the aim of internalizing competency. You can expect:

  • Short input sessions and lots of hands-on, learn-by-doing practice
  • in-front-of-trainer presentations per participant (2 filmed), plus 3 practice presentations
  • Voice and speaking exercises
  • Personalized feedback for every presentation
  • Time and input on how to design audience-friendly slides
  • The chance to use your own topic on this presentation workshop
