Present Yourself with Power
4 Day course in the Netherlands

Do you feel confident giving presentations?
What about presentations in English?

Giving presentations can be a daunting task,
especially if you are asked to present in English.

Learning the techniques to overcome insecurities when presenting to
an audience, and perfecting the skills to do it in English often requires
two distinct training courses. For many business people, this double
investment of time can be difficult to arrange.
Work on your presentation and business English skills in one course!

Pauline van Aken and Amie de Jeu have collaborated to offer a unique opportunity
to improve your presentation skills and business English in one training course.

What you will improve during this 4-day-course:
  • Breathing techniques and voice control
  • Body language, purposeful expression and engaging the audience
  • Confidence presenting to small and large audiences
  • Techniques for dealing with the media, a camera and a microphone
  • English language skills; including grammar, vocabulary, and learning to identify and avoid typical pitfalls
  • Professional, clear and concise expression in English
  • Insight into cross- cultural aspects of presenting to an international audience
  • Ability to pinpoint your main message, guide the listener and make the presentation flow
