I'm running an updated version of my presentation skills course for UKeIG this year. It takes place at CILIP HQ.
We focus on creating amazing PowerPoint materials, but also talk about presenting itself, and using newer tools like Prezi and Kahoot. It's a very hands-on workshop, with plenty of time spent creating presentations, but it's NOT the kind of course where you have to stand up in front of the class and do a presentation!
Some quotes from previous versions of this course:
“I would definitely offer it to other colleagues as I feel the techniques covered are ones that could be practically incorporated into working practice i.e. they’re not just a gimmick to do once to show you’ve attended the workshop, but something that you can build in to your presentations to continue that search for best practice and therefore better experience for attendees – whether they’re students, staff, or members of the public.”
“Fantastic course, wonderful trainer. One of the best training sessions I have ever been on! Presentation and pace was perfect with plenty of time to try things out."
“I found this session very useful indeed and will be using all the tips to help improve my presentation skills. For me it was the perfect balance of information, activity, and experimentation. Hugely enjoyable, when are you coming back?”
“Ned is an expert and an engaging speaker. Very supportive atmosphere for learning. I’ve looked at Ned’s material online but it was great to have him explain it. Very, very relevant and a big help in my day-to-day work. Thank you Ned!”
