Presentation Skills

We’ve all the heard the statistics – the vast majority of people fear Public Speaking more than anything else in life, including spiders, snakes and even death!

This fear blocks people from many opportunities in life, and I know the experience of presenting need not be this daunting!

The focus of my Presentation Skills Workshops is to get people comfortable in their own skin.

The worst Public Speakers are those that attempt to imitate others and take on a ‘style’ that is nothing like their natural way of being. So my starting point is to help people experience simply speaking in front of a small group of people. What they talk about at this stage is irrelevant – just getting the experience of successfully holding people’s attention for even a short period of time logged in their brains as a reference structure for the future is what matters most!

Corporate In-house programs are specifically designed to meet the needs and experience levels of those attending.

Our Public Workshops on Presentation Skills are focused on either business owners who wish to use speaking as a marketing tool, or corporate employees who want to master this fundamental business and life skill.

All programs will draw on topics from the following:

Identifying your fears when Presenting

  • Potential problems & possible solutions

Managing your nerves

  • 31 Tips that will make a difference!

Make your inner voice work for you!

  • What’s your Explanatory Style?
  • Reframing

Presentation Skills Testimonials

“Thank you for your wonderful seminar on Critical Presentation Skills. I enjoyed it immensely – as well as being thoroughly challenged throughout the day. But all day you provided strong encouragement and support, your warm manner made us all comfortable and suddenly all things became possible.  Thanks for a great day.”

Anne Morton, Business Manager, Lifestyle Videos


“I enjoyed being encouraged to present and learning that the only thing stopping me from doing this well were the thoughts in my head.” 

Kimberley Dixon, Manager Southern Region, Canon Australia

Jikara Liddy, Project Manager, Telstra

Her skill as a communicator is truly extraordinary, and the creativity and spontaneity she brings to the learning environment is exceptional. Many participants comment that their learning with Sandi has been a ‘life changing experience’.”

Denise Lavell, Training Service Manager, Synergy Plus Training & Development


 “After more than  eight years in the speaking industry I have seen a lot of speakers and trainers and I can say without hesitation, Sandi Givens is one of the finest.  Sandi's attention to detail, professionalism, genuine care for her audience and outstanding presentation skills make her a must for any organisation seeking improved performance.  I had the privilege of working with Sandi and a team of other presenters, to deliver a 3-month leadership program for one client over four years. I can tell you, Sandi was a favourite with the different groups ever year.  I would happily recommend Sandi Givens as a speaker, trainer or MC to any company or event organiser.”

  • Work/Life Balance doesn't exist - and while we continue to strive to achieve it, we are setting ourselves up for disappointment.

    Why?

    The phrase itself suggests a couple things that are inherent in the problem:

  • Frankly, no. It's not possible - and we are causing ourselves untold frustration and disappointment while we keep trying to achieve it!
     
     
    Why do I say this?
     
    Well, think for a minute about the phrase itself - 
  • (WARNING: Your life as you know it is about to change)

     

    “How can I handle difficult people?”

    Answer – you can’t.

    “Wait – what? You mean I’m stuck with them in my life?”

    Answer – it all depends on how you look at it.

  • I recently attended a three-day women’s festival that I attended for the first time in 2016. It’s never the same the second, third or umpteenth time around is it? First of all, there’s that ‘first time newness’ that we can only get once. “Wow! Look at that!” “Goodness, that’s amazing!” And so on … because we are seeing things through fresh, first-time eyes.

    In our subsequent visits, while we look for that same magic, but logically know it will be different than our beloved ‘first-time’.  We then start to notice what’s not there that we liked the previous year(s), and lament “But I really liked that!”

    So this year, I decided to focus instead on what was new, different and intriguing. And that’s how I came across The Release Tree.

  • We’ve all heard these definitions …

    Courage is not the absence of fear, but the conquering of it.  (I’ve seen this attributed to Dan Millman)

    Courage is resistance to fear.  (Thanks Mark Twain)

    Courage is mastery of fear.  (Mark Twain again)

    What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.  (Kelly Clarkson made this line famous in her pop song)

    In other words, grit your teeth and move on regardless. Tough it out. Toughen up.

     

    A lot of people who know me say I’m one of the most tenacious, determined, “courageous” people they know. And I’ve always kind of liked this. I’m proud that I ‘hang in there’, dig deep and find my way through challenges.

    My father (bless you, dad) had a saying that went something like this: “The real measure of a person’s character is how they handle adversity.” And I liked this too – for most of my life.

    Whenever I was going through a tough time, I’d remember my dad’s words and think ‘keep going, Sandi – you’re developing character. People will admire you for the fact that you’ve made it through all this crap.’ And so I did keep going (though I’m not sure this really earned me brownie points in the admiration-from-other-people stakes).
