Welcome to Pink Elephant Communications.

We’re based in Glasgow’s Pollok Country Park.

By introducing some simple rules for communication.

They apply to every aspect of life.

Whether that’s pitching to the senior management team.

Giving a TED talk on your chosen subject.

Or simply writing an important email.

So what will you learn from our advanced presentation skills course?

Read on.

We’ve delivered over 4,000 training sessions.

Across 25 different countries.

It all started in 1989 in Glasgow with Bill McFarlan.

And the rules he created are as relevant today as ever.

We go wherever the work takes us.

From Lochgilphead to London. 

And from Munich to Milngavie.

Every advanced presentation skills course we deliver has a clear goal.

To make you feel more confident in all of your communication.

We do this by taking you through our Golden Rules.

Five simple tips to redefine your presentations.

We’ll start with taking out the jargon.

And replacing that with pictures.

Next, it’s onto the watering-down words like try, hopefully and quite.

We’ve got better words to substitute in their place.

After that, it’s on to the pink elephants.

Our term for unnecessary negatives that we use in everyday speech.

Penultimately, we’ll discuss dealing directly with any question.

We believe there are five possible answers to start with.

And lastly, we’ll show you the structure to bring it all together.

A visual example to run by all of your communication.

And that’s the tip of the iceberg of our advanced presentation skills course Scotland.
