Presentation Skill Training
A List To Help You Develop Effective Presentation Skills

If you think you need presentation skill training, or presentation skills coaching then cast your eyes down this list. It's a full list of the skills you need to present well, and present with no fear.

List Of Presentation Skills

You can trust this list because it's based on more than 30 years of practical public speaking in education, military, business and community organizations. The 'real world' in other words.

I've tried to keep it relevant to most of us. You will find "Addressing your staff" for example but I've left off "US Presidential Inauguration Speech".

You can use it to do an inventory of your own skills right now. Maybe even give yourself a score out of ten if you want to get all systematic about it!

Focus on one a week and in a year you'll be a more skillful presenter for sure.

Or you can just browse it, and maybe a sudden flash of enthusiasm will arise about one or two of the items on the list. Next thing you know you're upskilling in an area that's been holding you back.

You could even use it to evaluate a training course you're thinking of taking. Or take it to the course and make sure you get it all covered.

Anyway, you're a big kid now. Use it however you like! I just hope it builds your confidence by giving you greater understanding. If it does, it'll help you speak with no fear.
