Communicate your vision

Presentation skills course

Presentation Courses are only useful when they are tailored to the needs of your organisation. Masha Tarle puts a great emphasis on getting to know what your organisation does and the kind of value you provide. Presentation skills are key for private and public organisations, but are specially relevant for non-profits and NGOs that need to make their message heard without the marketing budgets of the "big players".

What makes my presentation courses unique

  • each presentation course is tailored to include the type of content you will share, your usual communicative purpose and your audiences
  • we look at how your organisation presents itself- the branding and messaging you have and how this works and translates to your employees
  • each course provides an opportunity to put skills to use 
  • depending on the size of the group, each course participant receives their own individual improvement report
  • if you schedule more communication skills courses, you will receive a discount. Same goes for coaching packages for individual employees who wish to improve their presentation skills.

In our trainings we will also make sure to have hands-on activities where we can also bring in other non-work related topics. However, the main focus will be on your content- making your messages clear and to the point. Some of the activities we include in the trainings are also the brainstorming of purpose, defining audience needs, activities and tools to reduce anxiety, dealing with questions and discussions, storytelling and more.
