Engaging & influencing when presenting – Case Study

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.




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.


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


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 presentation further content and ideas are introduced. Participants can see each other improve and are in n o doubt about the power of the ideas reviewed.

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