Most international presentations are not very good. We have all experienced the boredom of sitting through a dull, unfocussed, monotonous presentation, which might suit the presenter;s fellow countrymen, but in no way suit us. And we can sympathize with the presenter. After all, it can be very difficult to choose what to say, how to say it, and what visual aids to show, not to mention the stress of standing up in front of an audience and being the centre of attention. Add to that the difficulty of doing it in a foreign language, or to a foreign audience, and you can understand why public speaking is the number one fear for most of the world’s managers.
On our Presenting Effectively Around the World courses we focus on tailoring your presentation to your audience: to their national, professional or company culture, to their level of knowledge, to their degree of hostility or excitement and to their specific needs. By the end of the course you should have a clear framework for how to prepare, deliver and illustrate your presentations, and you will have practised doing so, on camera, several times. We believe that presenting is a skill, and that you need to do it again and again to improve your performance.
The content of these tailored courses is agreed with the client, and fine-tuned with the participants. However, on a typical workshop you could expect to:
Be on your feet presenting at least four times
Identify the different cultural preferences audiences might have
Discover the key to designing a clear, attractive, audience-focussed message
Learn how to tailor your presentations to your international audience’s preferences
Look at the most appropriate way to structure your presentations
Design visual aids that are memorable and clear to an international audience
Work on your performance: your voice, delivery, non-verbal signals, and how best to interact with your visual aids and your audience
Handle questions diplomatically without risking cross-cultural communication breakdown
Keep your audience awake by choosing the right language, rhetorical tricks and rhythm
Our training is active and tailored to individual needs. You will normally be in a group of not more than six people, and you can expect to present regularly throughout the course, using your own presentations as the material. All your presentations will be recorded on camera, and you will get feedback from an expert trainer with experience of presenting and training throughout the world. Courses normally last between one and three days.
