Together with fellow trainer, Lesley Lyle, I have developed a unique presentation skills course specifically designed for people who present at conference
Having worked in an academic research context my early career, I have both attended and presented at a number of conferences over the years. I know first hand, that presenting to a large audience is a totally different ballgame and one which many people can find nerve-wracking which in turn has a detrimental impact on their delivery.
In 2016, The British Healthcare Business Intelligence Association (BHBIA) contacted me to discuss running a course specifically for conference presenters. It was something I had already seen a need for and discussed with a fellow trainer and friend, Lesley Lyle, and this opportunity provided us with the springboard to design and launch a brand new workshop.
During this 1 to 2 day workshop we cover a number of key topics pertinent to presenting at conference and run ‘clinic’ sessions throughout the day, providing an opportunity for delegates to practice and receive actionable feedback on their conference presentation style and skillset.
The feedback we received having piloted this course was extremely positive and we now offer this as an in-house training workshop to academic institutions and corporate organisations. If you would like to discuss holding a course like this at your workplace, do get in touch!
