Leadership presentation training

Leadership presentation training helps when leaders need to inspire by presenting the way forward to their team, or the wider organisation.

This workshop helps those in leadership positions with the skill of inspiring through a presentation. Leaders sometimes need to explain difficult messages; why things have to be done in a certain way; or why things aren’t going to be done; why downsizing is needed; why there will be no pay rise this year.

Leaders also need to inspire through explaining the vision for the future, the way ahead and where the team is going and how they are going to get there.

Participants consider such challenges and bring these into the workshop. With help form the trainer they then design a presentation which will lead their audience and inspire them.

They learn how to deliver leadership presentations and then practice the skills involved, with coaching from the training consultant.

Typical challenges of participants on our leadership presentation training:

  • “Some people think they are better than they are, and this can be a challenging conversation.”
  • “We are going to outsource and offshore some services in the next 18 months and I need to learn the best way to present this message to the whole business.”

Leadership presentation training – case study


Medium sized pharma business working in UK and across Europe.


Like any organisation there are times when challenging, or difficult messages need to be communicated by managers to their teams.


The need for this training was to show these managers how to make leadership presentations, which inspire their teams to accept even very difficult messages and be highly motivated.


The session required participants to bring their most challenging messages for practice. Following instruction from the trainer each person creates their presentation and then gives their presentation to the group. Feedback is from the peer group and the training consultant to help tailor and refine the content and the delivery. The agenda included:

  • Participants’ challenging messages.
  • What is a leadership presentation.
  • Structuring the leadership presentation.
  • Looking at the issue form the team’s perspective.
  • Practice and feedback.
  • Developing the presentation.
  • Practice and feedback.
