"My trainer was clearly very experienced at what she does. I was surprised to arrive to find out that I was the only individual on the training, however my trainer adapted the course to fit my exact requirements. She was inspiring & insightful. I walked away feeling confident & gaining more from the training than I ever could have expected. I feel incredibly grateful for having such a great trainer!"

He took the time to explain the "bigger picture" and taught skills that are not only useful for delivering presentations but other activities in both life and work.

"It was a really good day, from start to finish. Ken was great Trainer, he delivered the course in a fun unstuffy way which worked for me. We worked on flip charts, which I took copies of to help me recap on the things covered. Because of the weakness I have, I wasn't looking forward to the day, but Ken made it worthwhile and relatively painless. Presenting and nerve's is something that I need to conquer, this was a great start in achieving my goal. All in all a good day, Thanks Ken."

"This was an extremely useful course and the trainer was excellent. It was benefited by being delivered with a small cohort (only 3) as this gave more time for 1 to 1 and small group feedback as well as more time to practice delivery of presentations."

General Information

All Activia presentation courses have been created, reviewed and developed to ensure up to date provision and constantly improving standards of content. Our Presentation Skills training is interactive and classroom-based which maximises learning through the ability to ask questions and discuss specific issues.

Class Sizes

Maximum class size for Presentation Skills courses is 10 delegates, which ensures that attendees get adequate time for personal attention from the instructor. At some of our centres, the maximum class size is 12 delegates.

Note that we never cancel our scheduled classes -- even if there are only one or two delegates -- so once you have booked, your place is assured.

For training at your offices, we can deliver classes of up to 15 delegates, though with bigger class sizes you must understand that there is less time for questions from delegates, and this may affect the quality of their experience.
