JCI Edinburgh will on 25 October host ‘Presenter’, a full day workshop designed to help young professionals boost their presentation skills. The event will focus on equipping attendants with the skills they need to present with confidence, culminating in each participant delivering a three-minute presentation at the end of the day.

Open to anyone looking to develop his or her presentation technique, the full day workshop will adopt a practical approach. One third of the day will be allocated to an informative seminar on the concepts of delivering an effective presentation, with the rest devoted to tasks that will allow participants to develop and hone their skills.

Free for members of JCI Edinburgh and £25 for non-members, the event will enhance participants’ communication and negotiation skills. Participants will also be schooled in the art of audience engagement, from utilising visual aids that create strong delivery methods, to tailoring their presentations to suit specific audiences.

Two presentation veterans will lead the workshop: JCI Scotland’s National President Lesley Fowler, alongside JCI Edinburgh Training Director Stuart Bradley. They will coach attendees through various stages, starting with simple basics like making introductions right through to presenting ideas confidently to large groups.

Stuart Bradley said “this is the go-to event for complete novices and more experienced public speakers alike. Mastering the art of presenting ideas to large groups of people is an invaluable skill for those looking to advance their careers and the whole day will be very hands-on with plenty of opportunity to give and receive feedback. It’s a great opportunity to network, build confidence and pick up useful tips in a friendly, relaxed environment.”

Olivia Dunnett, a JCI Edinburgh member and IT Trainee at Lloyds Banking Group said : “I attended the Presenter course in 2013 and picked up so many new skills which I am still using today. It’s a fantastic course where you learn all about how to present, how to put a presentation together and how to deliver it. I would highly recommend attending.”
