Advanced Presentation Skills

The Associates and Senior Associates in this mid sized law firm have all the necessary theoretical and practical legal knowledge. The challenges can be in conveying this in an interesting manner.

Background

This workshop works with each individual in the workshop to develop their approach to become more engaging. This can mean changes in the content of the presentation, changing the way content is presented, and in modifying communication skills.

Need

To develop the participants’ skills to a higher level for presenting both internally and externally.

Activity

We used a blend of instruction, reviewing the basics, practice and discussion of how to apply ideas.

This is an informal but focussed session. Feedback is gained from the participants and trainer so that everyone has has the opportunity to improve in the workshop.

In between participant presentations, further content and ideas are introduced. Participants can see each other improve and are in no doubt about the power of the ideas reviewed.

There is regular discussion on the subject of each of the presentations and how best each can be communicated; what level of detail needs to be conveyed; what the slide should say, and the balance of information on the slide and that given by the presenter.

Outcomes

Every participant practised their approach, received developmenal feedback and improved their presentation skills.
