GITP

Yes!! Our Neuropresenting Certification is now a National Diploma Qualification

What is Neuropresenting you ask?

Neuropresenting is a world first programme blending the latest research in Neuroscience, adult learninNeuropresenting March 2017 (2)g and professional presenting all in one innovative and highly interactive programme.

It is the first programme and qualification of its kind in the world and we are pretty excited about that.

Paula Smith (GITP Director) developed the first qualification in Presenting in Australia several years ago and although  a robust qualification in its own right was missing a magic ingredient ‘Neuroscience’. It just happened to be what Karen Livey’s  (A friend and colleague of Paula’s) expertise were in. So when Paula and Karen  put their heads and expertise together the Neuropresenting programme and qualification was developed with the input of an International advisory board.

After a hugely successful pilot programme overseas, Paula and Karen thought it would be a great idea to set some new standards for training and presenting here in Australia and had the programme written to align with our Australian competency based training system without losing the integrity of the powerful programme.

These gorgeous Ladies are the first Perth Neuropresenters ™.

We are looking forward to personally presenting the programme around Australia and overseas later this year. It is delivered in a 5 day face to face block with a on-line learning block (lots of videos for you to enjoy) prior to the face to face block.

Executive Speaking – Yes, It’s Scientific

Executive Speaking – Yes, it’s scientific

Do you want to get the boardroom addicted to your story? How about your staff or your clients?

Thanks to the latest findings in Neuroscience we now know what brain chemicals make us stop and pay attention. So, can we use this information to engage our listeners and make them pay attention by sharing stories? The answer is yes.

A great story can trigger the same brain chemicals that cause us to pay attention, chemicals like cortisol (help the body respond to stress and danger), oxytocin (love and trust) and dopamine (the brain’s reward and pleasure centres).

Inspirational Leaders tell stories. They know that emotion trumps logic and a presenter needs to touch a person’s heart as well as their head.

By carefully crafting your business stories, you can connect at a much deeper level. You can get your clients and staff on board with your vision and that can be powerful.

Business is rapidly changing and to stay connected in a rapidly changing world we need to master the art and science of communication, influence, presenting and storytelling. Our clients and staff are more sophisticated than ever and see through the old ways of ‘selling and telling. We now know how and why people are inspired by our stories so we have no excuse to bore everyone with hundreds of power point slides filled with data and charts.

Educate, inspire, inform, motivate, influence and even train others by getting our audiences addicted to our cause, our why, our stories.

3 tips for a great story:

  1. Use the rule of 3 where possible
  2. Make people care about your facts and figures
  3. Never be the hero in your own story

Sara Blakely, the founder of Spanx is the youngest self-made female millionaire in the world, sold 10 million products without spending a cent on advertising. She leveraged the power of her story and people found it irresistible. What’s your story?

Next time you are planning a boardroom pitch or perhaps a staff induction, choose the best stories that really demonstrate the point, then add a dose of data if you must.
