Presentation Skills Workshop

Presentation skills is a soft skill we do not always think about in our learning and development journey. Some form of presenting is now common at almost every level in every business. We often find ourselves in front of colleagues at a team meeting talking through Management Information (MI) figures and reports or perhaps in a client review, proposal or project meeting or even pitching or tendering for business and perhaps lack confidence in presenting important information and adapting presentations to different personalities and audiences.

The Smart Training Company are running a Presentation Skills Workshop -for a maximum of 8 delegates so that they can tailor the content and support on an individual basis within a small, friendly and supportive group.

1 and 2 March 2022  at BMA House located near Euston. 

beam/HBAA members are entitled to a £30 discount if they book by 1st February. Please email the Executive Office for the exclusive code.
