Unique Presentation Skills Training for Technical Specialists

For a number of years now we’ve been helping technical specialists, financiers, scientists, and engineers to communicate their complex ideas in a way that everyone from Nobel Prize winners to school kids can understand.

Our unique combination of techie and creative backgrounds, with a big dollop of business sense, brings out the best in technical presenters. If you have complex ideas to convey and would like to know how to make them interesting and comprehensible to the layman or woman, read on.

We offer a range of tips, tools and techniques from the performance arts, science, psychology and business and encourage you to use the full range of your capabilities to make your message accessible.

We use video and playback so that you can see the results for yourself and gain from the feedback of others.

With a maximum of six people on each course there’s plenty of time for individual coaching.
