Presentation coaching

Anthony Haynes writes: Many of the professionals we work with need to give presentations – as part of either the job application process or their work more generally. And for many that constitutes a challenging prospect. If presenting takes you out of your comfort zone, you’re not alone. At FJWTS, therefore, we’ve developed a personalised service to help you get on top of the process.

The aim
The service is designed to meet two aims:
  1. To help you enhance the quality of the presentation that you’re working on
  2. Capacity-building: to help you feel more skilled and confident about giving presentations generally.
How it works
The typical structure of each engagement runs as follows:
  1. We agree a brief. This can be done by email or phone, but might well also include a brief video call,
  2. You send us, by an agreed deadline, (a) contextual material (for example, the advertisement for the job you’re applying for) and (b) any digital resource to be used during the presentation itself (typically, a slide deck).
  3. We meet online.
    1. You run through the presentation
    2. We provide responses in the form of (i) feedback (a review of the presentation and (ii) feedforward (suggestions on how to enhance the presentation)
  4. After the meeting, we’ll email you a digest (typically in the form of a bulleted list) of the ‘feedforward’ points.
Where appropriate, we’ll provide links/references to supporting online resources (our own and/or those published by third parties).

The cost?
£175 + VAT.
