A growing number of organisations ask candidates for jobs to make a presentation.
It can take various forms.
The simplest is address an Interview Panel from a standing or sitting position and make a statement of suitability for the job in question without any audio visual aids.
The most common is the PowerPoint presentation.
In between are presentations using a flip-chart or over-head projector.
They all have one thing in common – you are given the opportunity to make as positive an impression as possible.
And all you need to do is make the presentation in the manner of successful presenters.
There are three parts to this programme.
In the first part we outline to you the strategies and techniques employed by successful presenters; how to open, how to close your presentation; what to put in between; how to manage nervousness.
In the second you go off – with our notes – and design and practice your presentation along those lines.
In the third part you come back to us 7-10 days later and make the presentation and we give you feedback on your performance; note what you did well and what you need to fine-tune.
Between that second visit and your actual presentation all you need to do is a fifteen to twenty minute practice session a day to make sure you are on song on the day.
