PRESENTATION SKILLS TRAINING
FOR THE NHS
It is a myth that good presenters are born and not made. No matter if your mouth is dry and your palms are sweaty, training will put you on the road to becoming a good speaker.
Whether you are preparing a conference presentation, addressing a public meeting or presenting proposals to your bosses, we’ll help turn your presentation into a performance. We want you to be the speaker they remember…..but for the right reasons. Our training courses are designed to help everyone make the most of their material and focus on practical steps to success. We tailor our approach to the needs of delegates, using direct experience of the situations they encounter in their working lives. Presentation skills training can be applied to a wide range of situations so a generic course can be delivered to a mixed audience, but we prefer to design courses to suit particular needs, such as a recent course for finance managers – ‘Making Finances Fascinating’ – and a series of targeted courses held for managers in one organisation to help them refine a vital presentation and work as a group. Courses are structured to develop delegates’ skills and confidence in an encouraging, positive and patient environment whilst maintaining an element of fun and active participation.
Training facilities pictured are at St Nicholas Catholic High School, Business & Enterprise College (BEC)-Cheshire.
Presentations are recorded on video and feedback helps delegates build a personalised action plan to maximise presentation skills. M&M Associates works with amtv in a unique partnership to add value to presentation skills training for the NHS. M&M has ten years’ experience of planning and implementing communications within the NHS and has trained many clients in the art of talking to the media or in front of an audience. Alistair Macdonald of amtv has more than twenty years’ experience in broadcasting and is a regular speaker and master of ceremonies at high profile events. He is a member of the Professional Speakers’ Association. Alistair has trained many senior managers in a wide range of industries. Together we offer the NHS highly targeted presentation training that provides real practical value. Feedback from recent delegates: “Entertaining, informative, well structured and conducive to learning” “Very impressed with knowledge and ability of the presenters” “It was amazing how much could be done in one day” “I achieved more than I expected”
