"the ultimate presentation skills and public speaking programme"
Presentation Mastery will take your levels of confidence to new heights in getting the results you want from presenting.
The comprehensive programme is for business executives, senior leaders and managers who need to sell their services or their ideas; engage their team or speak at events – from keynote speeches to team briefings – knowing they can inspire, inform and interest people.
The programme combines group sessions with private coaching over a period of three months – by the end of which time you will have applied your skills and gained confidence as a speaker by stretching your experience to those kind of events that currently feel outside your comfort zone.
Caroline Hopkins is an award-winning presentations coach who has helped hundreds of people from senior organisational Chiefs to Princes Trust apprentices.
By the end of the programme, you will be able to stand and deliver an engaging talk, which you have created using a simple step-process to minimise the time to prepare. You will understand how adrenaline can enhance your charisma, and be able to channel it into ‘performance energy’ rather than fear it. You will have a process to manage your state, create content quickly and deliver with impact whenever you need to speak in public.
You will complete a very short online pre-programme audit to give us an idea of your specific areas of concern when it comes to presenting and what you most want to get from the Programme. If required, we can also have a brief chat by phone to discuss your learning outcomes for the day so that we can be confident of addressing your specific needs.
Group Workshop (Max 8 people)
Our first session is a group zoom workshop (max 8 delegates) over a morning (9.30-1.00pm). We cover all the key skills that the best presenters use to engage people. You will also learn a powerful process to be able to create content quickly that will be interesting for your audience.
The group workshop is highly interactive and you will have the opportunity to engage with the other delegates to start to support each other as you develop your skills.
1-1 Coaching (1 week later)
Session 2 is a 30 minute private online coaching session with Caroline to support you as you apply the theory you have covered in Session 1 – to create a presentation that you will use for Session 3.
Using the ‘Content Outline’ template we will work together to make sure you have a structure in place that you are confident to work-up into an engaging presentation.
Group Presentations (2 weeks later)
In Session 3, we come back together online as a small group to deliver your presentations and give feedback on each presentation.
This session provides a great opportunity to put all your skills into practice, but also to learn from watching other people’s presentations. The feedback from these sessions can really help you to take your skills to the next level of mastery.
Follow-up Coaching (over 3 months)
The follow-up coaching support helps you apply your learning over a 3 month period to grow your confidence as you stretch your comfort zone as a presenter.
During the follow-up phase, you will have access to Caroline Hopkins as your coach and mentor to support you as you apply your skills by giving presentations as often as you can, based on the Action Plan you have created in the Presentation Mastery workshop.

Online 1-1 Coaching
You may prefer to have 1-1 coaching – particularly if you have an important presentation coming up that you want to work on with Caroline. Sessions take around 2 hours – and most people choose to have two sessions: one to work on the content; and the second session to focus on confident delivery so that you are comfortable with your presentation on the day.
