Presentation skills health check

Do you need to improve your presentation skills, for yourself or your colleagues?

Would a free assessment of your performance and suggestions for improvement from an expert be helpful?

We are offering presentation skills health checks. They only take 30 minutes and are done online.

Using zoom, you will cover a pre-prepared five-minute presentation. This will be followed by a detailed analysis of your performance and includes recommendations as to how you can make improvements.

Just sign up on the form and we'll be in touch.

There are limited sessions, so fill in the form below as soon as you can.
