Individual Presentation Training Program
A powerful presentation inspires. Platforms such as TEDx show the most engaging and meaningful presentations. This raises the bar. Your presentations become more and more important for your career. And you, how will you present yourself?
Do you want to be influential with your presentations? Do you want to learn how to transform tension into positive energy? What do you need to learn to reach your audience, to convince the Board of Directors or to secure that grant for scientific research? How will you truly engage your audience?
We focus on your personal goals, online and/or offline. You will develop your own eloquence and learn to have fun while interacting with your audience.
In-company Presentation Training Program
Professionalism and fun; employees who represent both when talking about your product or services, will be far more effective and engaging. Competently and confidently they make a connection with the audience and exceed all expectations.
The in-company presentation training programs are strongly focused on developing one’s own effective presentation style within the context of the organization. Presentations for both internal and external audiences will be addressed. Whether it concerns a presentation for colleagues or customers, it is equally important to aim for an engaged and collaborating audience as this will increase their understanding and memory of the presentation.
Are you interested in an in-company Presentation training? I will be more than happy to look into the possibilities together with you.
Online guidance with presentations, at the time your employees need it. Marieke de Boer offers her presentation training program in different formats. Online workshops can be designed to address current topics in your company. Your employees have access 24/7 to illustrating videos and background materials. For questions and discussion, there is a chat option, in addition to weekly coaching sessions. This way, your employees stay up to date and can exchange best practices among each other. This effective and flexible design allows your employees to develop both individual and collective presentation styles.
Face to face
Actually being in front of an audience, delivering a presentation to other participants is - of course - a wonderful way to experience ‘the real thing’ and to learn from practicing the skills you need. You will notice how you come across to others, and also how to strengthen your performance right there on the spot. You will get used to really meaning every word that you say, even if you’re saying it for the tenth time - precisely because you are talking with a real live audience. And on top of the live presentation practice, you will also get plenty of short exercises, which can help you become more and more at ease in front of a group.
With a blended presentation program, you can combine the best of both versions. All topics that can be studied individually, can be done at work. The performance goals and progress are discussed in online coaching sessions, e.g. leading up to an important presentation. During live or online interactions, we focus on all aspects that makes a presentation unique and successful, like engaging with the audience, a good set up and one’s own expression and eloquence.
Marieke de Boer
My years of experience in teaching drama and theatre are very important in my work as a presentation coach. It has given me a keen eye for body language and the non-verbal communication between you and the audience. As a presentation coach, I will give you direction and guide you to give a convincing presentation –even when the topic is highly complex.
My approach combines different points of view. I enjoy to experiment with the philosophical and the practical, the intuitive and the sensory, more images or more language. How will you find the optimal mix for yourself and your audience? We will practice how to take on the standpoint of your audience and to build your presentation keeping this in mind. Using the full potential of your voice, choosing words mindfully to support your natural presentation, and transforming tension into positive energy; I will make sure you deliver your message!
