How Do You Plan a Presentation Training Programme For Success?
If you want to improve presentation skills for you or your colleagues, the most effective way is with a top-quality presentation training programme.
With a well-designed training programme you’ll develop the skills you need to become a confident and effective presenter, whether in front of a large audience or delivering a pitch to a potential client.
How to Plan A Top Presentation Training Programme
1. Identify Your Goals and Objectives
The first step in planning a presentation training programme is to identify your goals and objectives. What do you want to achieve with the training programme? Are you looking to develop your confidence and overcome nervousness? Do you want to learn how to structure a presentation effectively or how to use visual aids to enhance your message?
By identifying your goals and objectives, you can be certain that the training programme you select addresses your specific needs and helps you achieve your desired outcomes.
At Benjamin Ball Associates, we always start by agreeing your objectives so that you can be sure that your training programme delivers exactly what you need.
2. Assess Your Current Presentation Skills
Before you begin your presentation training programme, it’s important to assess your current skills. This will help you identify your strengths and weaknesses and tailor your training to address any areas where you need improvement.
You can assess your current skills by recording yourself delivering a presentation or asking a colleague or friend to provide feedback on your presentation style. You can also take an online assessment to evaluate your current presentation skills.
By assessing your current skills, you’ll be able to focus your training on the areas that will have the greatest impact on your presentation performance.
At Benjamin Ball Associates, we assess your skills in many ways. Perhaps you have a video of you presenting? Perhaps you have been given feedback? And we’ll send you sone pre-session questions so you can tell us where you are now. And we always start your presentation training with you presenting so you can show us your strengths and weaknesses.
3. Select the Right Presentation Training Provider
Once you’ve identified your goals and assessed your current skills, it’s time to select the right training provider. There are many presentation training providers available, so it’s important to choose one that aligns with your goals and objectives.
Consider factors such as the provider’s experience, reputation, and training approach. Do they offer a tailored training programme that addresses your specific needs, or do they have a one-size-fits-all approach? Do they use interactive and engaging training techniques, or do they rely on lecture-style presentations?
Researching and selecting the right training provider is key to the success of your presentation training programme.

Once you’ve selected a training provider, it’s time to develop a training plan. This should include a detailed outline of the training programme, including the topics covered, the training format, and the duration of each session.
Consider the participants and tailor your training plan accordingly. For example, if your participants are visual learners, you may want to incorporate more visual aids into your training programme. If your participants are more hands-on, you may want to include interactive exercises and group activities.
A well-designed training plan will help ensure that your participants are engaged and motivated throughout the programme.
