Masterclass Impactful Presenting

Make your presentations

persuade and inspire action

like never before

Learn 3 crucial and easily implementable approaches that will bring more buy-in and confidence.

You will improve your impact, by learning tools to communicate your ideas with clarity and conviction.

Does your audience take the right action?

You know what should be done, you have a strategic vision or a clear idea for change and innovation. You try to communicate your vision, but too little people follow. There is not enough action taken.

It can be frustrating and it hinders progress.

Most people do not realise the opportunities they waste by giving standard corporate presentations. They do not see a chance to inspire and, really get people moving in the right direction.

Instead of creating urgency, determination and focus; instead of empowering employees to take responsibility and take action, they create resistance and apathy. The audience draws different conclusions than the speaker intended.

This happens because most professionals do not know how to use a presentation to its fullest.

Getting your speeches right is a phenomenal asset. You need to know how to make it work for you in order to have success and really make a difference in your organisation.

It doesn’t have to be this way . You do not need to waste these opportunities.. You can do it differently. If you know how.

You can learn how to give a presentation that puts people into action.

After following this Masterclass you will know the fundamentals of how to give an arresting, well structured presentation that will get your audience to take the action and you see as the leader you are.

Dianne GeerdsDiana Geerds – Innovative consultant City of Amsterdam

“I did the masterclass Disruptive Mindset out of sheer curiosity. It opened my eyes in ways I did not expect. I discovered that if you see something you want to improve, that possibility is real and you can make it happen. I embraced that philosophy and now, all of a sudden, I feel ‘in the lead’ in my job, but also in my personal life. The feeling that I can not make a difference is gone.”
