The McCarthy Consultancy will work with you to develop your personal and individual presentation skills that will allow you to deliver a presentation to your maximum capability. Whether you are an executive, manager, coach, student, administrator or individual, the ability to be able to make a presentation is a challenging and sometimes daunting prospect, The McCarthy Consultancy will work with you to enable you to succeed in delivering engaging and compelling presentations.

What is a presentation? Simply put it is a means of communication which can be to a single person or multi person audience and can be carried out in various speaking situations. It can be at a meeting, at a conference, by different media channels or just face to face. However, irrespective of the outlet, the steps required to deliver it are key.

Many presentations involve the use of visual aids and you will be trained on how to ensure these add value to your presentations. If visual aids are used well, they will greatly enhance the presentation by adding impact and strengthening audience involvement, sadly if not used properly they can get in the way and compromise your presentation.

As part of our personal coaching programme, The McCarthy Consultancy will support you in creating an individual process that will involve a step-by-step preparation and the method and means of presenting with confidence in each of your various speaking situations.
