The Conference Speaking Preparation workshop is for executives who need to inspire, motivate or educate a conference audience.

You are speaking at a conference or event.  No doubt time and effort have been made to ensure the venue is correct, the right agenda has been put together and that the AV provider is on time.  How prepared are you for your conference talk?

Companies invest large amounts of money bringing staff, clients or industry stakeholders together to share information and communicate key messages, although how much thought is ever actually given to the impact and effectiveness of their speakers?  

This intensive programme is designed for people who have little time to spare.  It offers practical tools to help you get your message across memorably, structure your material for the best impact and present to audiences. The workshop provides plenty of opportunities to practise.

Why attend?

By the end of this workshop, participants will have a clear understanding of how to:

  • Communicate their message and personality in a relaxed, confident and memorable way – establishing their credibility and credentials – in all situations, from seminar talks to industry conference.
  • Structure their presentation into a compelling and powerful message providing the audience with the key points from the outset.
  • Prepare and use notes (bullets) in the most discreet and effective manner • Use visual aids to properly support and reinforce their message
  • Handling questions in a confident and concise way


This is a skills-based training course. Learning skills takes practice.
