Deloitte / HP Alliance deloitte

– presentation skills training, presentation evaluation

“On behalf of both Deloitte and HP, I want to thank you for your ‘Presentation Skills’ workshop given to us during my team meeting at the New Park Hotel. As you know, quality presentation are vital to our success at Deloitte, as well as to our colleagues at HP. Your lively, well rounded training, including a focus on preparation (strong opening, body and close), body dynamics/voice control and filler words, was well received by the audience. A vast majority of the audience rated your presentation as very useful.

Your evaluation on several of the morning’s speaker proved enlightening to the entire crowd! Pointing out the strengths and areas for improvement have motivated many of my team members to take further action to improve their presentation skills. It is truly amazing that people do not know that they are using filler words; the ahs, ums, and, so…. 20, 30 or more times during a short presentation. By simply point this out during your presentation, helped all of us understand this and we will indeed factor that into future presentation. Your overall workshop will certainly make my team more effective. Thanks again and I will look forward to working with you in the future…”
