This first module is about learning how to design and deliver presentations for optimal audience engagement. Public speaking and presentation skills are an essential part of Trainer's skill set to offer content charismatically creating a context where it's easy to learn the material
An excellent public speaker and presenter is fearless on stage, they own the space, they know how to maximise the use of their tonality to enhance their message, they use their body language to engage the audience, they are gifted story tellers, and they structure their material in a sequence so it is naturally absorbed by the audience making it easy for people to remember the material. You will learn all of this and more during the six day module on the Advanced Presentation and Public Speaking Skills course.

Module I: is about delivering presentations using NLP patterning. At the end of Module I, you will give a 35-minute presentation to a group of people. This is not a test, just a way to gauge your skills.
Module II: is about teaching NLP and doing NLP presentations. At the end of Module II, you will give a 35-minute presentation using the skills you have learnt at the course. Again, this is not a test, but you will receive feedback as to whether you would have passed, had you delivered the same presentation during your assessment.
Module III is about assessing your skills as an NLP Trainer.
