The Simitri Advanced Presentation Skills Workshop is for presenters who are looking to refresh previously learned presentation skills and to expand their ability to connect with the audience and deliver more powerful presentations.
The workshop goes beyond the fundamentals of presenting and focuses on creating a connection with the audience, leading to participants being more ‘natural’ and better handling difficult situations when speaking to small and large audiences.
During the workshop, participants review the three most important presentation skills - eye contact, voice and structure, before moving on to other skills that will help them engage their audience and ensure their ideas and recommendations are supported.

How is the workshop customised to your needs? Simitri takes a number of steps to ensure the workshop meets the needs of your organisation, your team and the individuals. The Facilitator works with your management team to understand the specific issues facing your business. The Facilitator speaks with each participant to understand his or her background, needs and objectives. The Participants complete a questionnaire to gain insight into their presenting strengths and areas for improvement. Through these pre-workshop activities the course becomes more relevant to the participants, resulting in a higher ‘absorption’ level and ensuring immediate use of their new skills in the workplace.
