Presentation skills training

I've delivered presentation skills training workshops on the effectiveness of humour for Google's Digital Garage, Power to Change, The Locality Conference, The Business Growth Hub, Avecto Cyber Security, and many others.

Present Yourself! uses stand up comedy and improvisation to create unique presentation skills training sessions

Taking experience from the demanding environment of stand-up comedy, These Present Yourself! comedy workshops use humour to help unlock creative thinking and build confidence in front of an audience.
It's an active workshop with plenty of side coaching and feedback from the perspective of a stand up comedian. There are no scripts, just learning and laughter.

What's covered:

  • Performance
  • Scripted content vs improvisation
  • Storytelling
  • Editing for impact and humour
  • Stage presence


    A different and refreshing way of looking at the skills that we use in presenting. I thoroughly enjoyed this workshop.
