Why should Paul facilitate your presentation skills programme?
Paul believes that whilst reading or attending lectures provides the foundation of presentation skills techniques, these must be entrenched practically. The desired levels of excellence are only achieved through repeated practice. This experiential training involves delegates preparing, delivering and evaluating the recorded evidence afterwards – only to do it again more than once. This way he achieves tangible results for his delegates who experience substantial skills shift and heightened confidence levels immediately. Find out more about our system here.
Why book Paul to speak at your next conference?
Your conference is a substantial investment. It takes a great deal of planning and involves concerted effort and expense. You owe it to yourself to book an experienced speaker who takes the trouble to understand your brief and delivers accordingly. By weaving relevant stories into his talks Paul invokes light hearted humour to get decisive messages across. Find out more about Paul’s conference talks here.
