Course Overview

In the competitive world that we live in, it is no longer enough to have just competency to carry out your job, you need to be able to communicate effectively as well. Presentation skills  are highly valued and is one that anyone can improve upon.

As information professionals we are required to have the skills to deliver a good presentation for our voices to be heard.  Influence needs be the focus of your information management work streams. Story telling moves people from one side to another. Senior management, staff and customers must be influenced to buy in to your IM ‘Brand’ or strategy.

What our clients said about the course

I thought my presentation skills were pretty good, but how I was wrong. This course helped me to pick up so many new ideas and ways of working. I didn’t realize how many new skills and techniques there were that could take me to the next level. I get so many compliments and great feedback on my presentations now, and I’m always able to engage my audience in a way that works.

This excellent training session helped me turn a very wordy information governance induction presentation into something that is now visually interesting and much more interactive. I would recommend this course to anyone who provides information governance related training. The course will help all information governance professionals better engage with their audience and turn information governance, which can be a dry subject, into something that is much more fun!
