GITP

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

What is Neuropresenting you ask?

It’s presenting with the brain in mind.

Neuropresenting®  is a world-first programme blending  Neuroscience principles, 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 were the first Perth Neuropresenters ®.

The Neuropresenting ® programme includes a broad range of topics and units.

10 BIG Presenting Mistakes to Avoid

10 BIG PRESENTING MISTAKES TO AVOID or MAYBE 12

We’ve all been to those presentations.

Emotional Intelligence Training with GITP
Emotional Intelligence Training with GITP

The ones where we stare in horror at the presenter who lacks any presenting skill or worse, the presenter who just doesn’t know how to behave appropriately from the platform, boardroom or training room floor. Yes, that same presenter who has been hired to inspire, educate or influence us.

So here are a few mistakes or ‘don’t dos’ to avoid when you next take the platform so you don’t have to be ‘that presenter’

1. Don’t start boring – your opening should get the attention of the audience and incite curiosity. Be creative and relevant.

2. Don’t ask the audience to do anything before you establish trust – you know the presenters who want us to raise our hands, stand up, sit down, or hug someone before the presentation has even begun.

3. Don’t get off topic – If you are asked to speak on a topic, design and deliver on that. Just because you know lots of other stuff – save it for next time.

4. Don’t steal time – You go over by 10  minutes, you have just stolen 10 minutes from the next presenter and now all the morning tea has gone cold all because you wanted to talk some more.

5. Don’t data dump – Tell stories, interact, share, inspire and give great examples. Too much data hurts our brains and your audience won’t remember it anyway.

6. Don’t present too fast or too slow – Present at a pace that is brain-friendly and enjoyable to watch and listen to.

7. Don’t wander around – There is something quite powerful about stillness. If you do move around make sure you move naturally and with purpose not because you can’t stand still.

8. Don’t sell from the platform – unless you have permission to do so. You don’t need to hard sell to get buy in from an audience who wants more of you.

9. Don’t complain – Never complain about anything from the platform. You’re bigger than that. Not even about the room, the organisers, the catering, the audience, the previous speaker or the Manager who booked you. Yes, presenters do it all the time, unbelievable.

10. Don’t let anyone else have the last word – Remember the primacy and recency effect. Your audience needs to leave with your key message ringing in their ears, not the audience member asking when the toilet break is.

Okay I’m on a roll and can’t stop so if you want 2 more tips stay put. Hmm that’s a bit like stealing time isn’t it. Thank goodness you’re  still here and morning tea is late.

11. Don’t talk about yourself too much – talk about your audience and how your key message will benefit them

12. Don’t be a copy of any other presenter – You are a ‘one of a kind’ presenter with a unique message – embrace your message and your authentic presenting style.

There are a few more but that’s a start.

Which ones are you guilty of? Even the professional speakers get it wrong sometimes. So perhaps you just needed reminding.

Are you ready to Speak Out and Play a Bigger Game in 2017?

Speak Out and Play a bigger game in 2017speak-to-profit

It’s time to throw your fear of public speaking to the wind and make 2017 your year to be seen and heard. It’s time for Presentation Intelligence

Presentation Intelligence is the blend of art, science and practice of commercial speaking. PQ is not about perfectly crafted speeches, far from it. PQ is about the design, development, delivery and ROI strategies of speaking in a commercial setting.

This could be a pitch to the boardroom, an inspirational talk to your staff, speaking up about your products and services to your target clients, presenting a training course, leading a workshop or let’s take it one step further ‘speaking to a room full of attendees at an industry conference’

Do you know how to:

  • Structure an influential presentation?
  • Craft and deliver powerful storytelling in business?
  • Choose the right methodology to engage your audience?
  • Use non-verbals to re-enforce your message?
  • Use brain-friendly strategies to ensure your messages stick?
  • Ensure your audience takes action after your presentation?
  • Measure the ROI to see if your presentation is having real impact?

Winging a presentation is a dangerous game when so much can be at stake. However, this doesn’t mean you need to be the most charismatic and ‘perfect’ presenter either. In fact, audiences sometimes cringe when the presenter is word-perfect and looks like they have choreographed their presentation within an inch of its life.

You just need to:

  • Be authentic in your approach
  • Know your stuff
  • Be passionate about your message
  • Have the best intention for your audience

And

have the skills and knowledge to structure your presentation in such a way you know your message is being heard.

Your presentation needs to have an impact on your audience every time.

Public Speaking and Presenting Skills are no longer luxury skills to have. Having the confidence and ability to speak out and have your message heard is a ‘must have skill in today’s competitive business arena. In fact, presenting is a vital key skill that most organisations insist their key staff possess or if you’re in business, Speaking Skills can grow your business and your brand exponentially.

I believe anyone can be a powerful presenter once they have the knowledge, skills, confidence and a strong desire to just share their message to the people they know need to hear it.

Are you ready to speak out in 2017? Are you ready to play a bigger game in your career or business? Are you ready for Presentation Intelligence ™?
