Presenting Made Brilliant

Presentations at work are a reality for almost all of us but we're rarely taught how to maximise our impact with specific techniques. With their experience of training actors to perform on stage, RADA Business can help you to become a more powerful and confident presenter, whoever your audience.

This masterclass will begin to teach you the techniques to take the focus away from what you present and instead focuses on how you present.

We will teach you how to build a confident and credible presence in highly pressured environments, how to open and close presentations convincingly, and how to leave your audience with a message that resonates.

  • Be able to make a strong and commanding entrance
  • Be more aware of how to use your breath to calm nerves
  • Start to understand how to use your voice to interest, influence and inspire
  • Connect with your audience
