  • Virtually brilliant
    Turn your presentation into a compelling story

    It was already difficult mastering the art of speaking to an audience who were directly in front of you. Now, the new world of on-line meetings, webinars and zoom conferences have created a new type of pressure for presenters. It’s much too easy for an online audience to become disengaged and your message to be lost.

    With practical and friendly tips for every sort of gathering both in the real world and virtual, Leanne and James take you through each of the stages of presenting and show you how to keep your audience sitting up and eager for more. From researching your topic, to adding humour and interest, from using your voice effectively to conquering your nerves, and using PowerPoint to enhance your message, rather than bury it, the Virtually Brilliant approach will see even the most experienced speaker improve their skills enormously.

    It will give confidence to those who have never delivered a speech before and will allow those who have done it many times to hone and finesse their skills in both the live and virtual space.

    You will learn how to:
    • Learn the presentation techniques for high engagement both online and onstage.
    • Construct presentations using our templates and techniques.
    • Turn your presentation into a compelling story.
    • Use an economy of words to bring clarity to your message.
    • Notice your nervous symptoms and channel your fear into excitement.

We were delighted with his work. He is a consummate professional communicator and MC. He took his role very seriously and understood our brief was not just for an MC but for someone who could really capture the mood of our event. James was witty, funny, charming and respectful of the emotions of those on stage and in the audience. He curated his remarks with great care and attention to detail. He also kept the pace of the evening going and ensured the show on stage knitted together seamlessly. He was on-time for our meetings, script review and rehearsal. He listened to our requirements and embraced our brief with enthusiasm. He’s a true professional and our audience loved him and so did we.

His brand of more sophisticated humour suited our night and our community.
