Does your business growth rely on you selling via online presentations?

Do you suffer unnecessarily from nerves prior to an online presentation?
If so, I can help!
Workplaces worldwide radically changed in 2020.
Depending on where you are in the world, and when you are reading this, you may be back in the office, missing the office or very happy now working from home.
How has it changed for you?
Businesses worldwide have had to adapt radically to halt the spread of the virus: social distancing guidelines mean office numbers have had to be reduced. Whilst psychologically, most workers are anxious about commuting via public transport.
It’s not just a short-term situation either.
91% of Fortune 500 CEOs believe that business travel will become less frequent even after the pandemic, replaced by video conferencing.
For many, these extreme circumstances have proven that working online from home can be highly effective.
We are extremely unlikely to go back to “normal” anytime soon. Even those who think that work will return to how it was pre-pandemic, have a significant wait. Most recently, Prof Ugur Sahin, BioNTech co-founder and vaccine co-developer with Pfizer, said: ‘We could have a normal winter next year’.
This, or a version of “this” is our normal until winter 2021.
In most industries the shift towards less office working and more virtual meetings is a permanent one. We must learn to adapt quickly or be left behind.
In essence, online presenting is the new business superpower.
"Exceptional presenters are made, not born"
During the first lockdown, I built on my existing knowledge of how to present virtually.
As someone who coaches and trains globally, I was often flying around the world, but I did have to fall back on coaching and training via video from time to time. It’s no longer the fall back.
In the first lockdown, I taught a range of business topics to leaders in several industries, I delivered webinars to many hundreds, researched best practice, coached dozens of leaders to deliver high stakes presentations & wrote a whitepaper called The art of an engaging virtual presentation.
And now, I’ve developed an online video course for busy professionals like yourself.
It’s called Design & Deliver – 18 bite-sized videos you can watch at your own pace, as well as a wealth of supplementary material.
I chose video to deliver this course because it is the perfect format for learning fast.
Visuals are processed 60,000 times faster in the brain than text – a 1-minute video is equivalent to 1.8m words!
Through these videos, you and your team can quickly learn to master the art of virtual presenting. I’ve designed a comprehensive course, from confidence and mindset, to mastering technology, to developing the way you use your voice.
It’s time to take your training into your own hands and conquer the fear of virtual presenting!
For over two decades I’ve coached business leaders across the world to find their authentic speaking style and deliver exceptional presentations. My award-winning book, The Leader’s Guide to Presenting, was Business Book of the Year in 2018. My course doesn’t just teach the basics, it draws on my experience of working with the C-suite and incorporates everything I coach.
Want to try before you buy?
Investing your time and money into training is a big commitment. Especially when there are so many starter courses out there either very cheap or free, designed for beginners.
You can get a taste of the course videos by previewing a small number before you buy, two from me and one that focuses on how engagement software can be used when presenting online by my colleague Merv Wyeth.
For many companies, there is a need to upskill at scale across the board. Given that is the case, there are volume discounts available of up to 40%, and for charities we offer 90% off. Groups receive a bespoke webinar to kick things off prior to the course and a wrap-up report is delivered showing anonymised progress (based on pre and post self-evaluation) across the group.
